MORENO VALLEY, California — Crews are making good progress against a wildfire in Riverside County that prompted the evacuation of a campground.

The blaze burning in steep terrain in Moreno Valley, about 70 miles east of Los Angeles, is 25 percent contained early Thursday.

Authorities say it's burning near Lake Perris State Park, where a group camp area was evacuated. The evacuation orders have been lifted. No structures are threatened.

The fire, which erupted Wednesday night, has blackened 150 acres of dry brush.

There's no word on what sparked the fire. No injuries have been reported.

Meanwhile a 49-square-mile wildfire burning for nearly 2 weeks in the San Bernardino National Forest is 70 percent contained.
