SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Crews continue to build containment lines around a wildfire that has charred 95 acres of dry brush in San Diego County's Mission Trails Regional Park.
San Diego Fire and Rescue spokesman Lee Swanson says the blaze is 85 percent contained Monday morning.
The fire was reported Sunday afternoon near the visitor center at the park north of San Carlos.
The park was evacuated as three helicopters and two fixed-winged aircraft helped about 200 firefighters battle the flames.
The fire's cause is under investigation.
The visitor center and several hiking trails are closed Monday.
