Emergency responders made progress overnight containing the fire that started near Vandenberg Middle School here Wednesday at approximately 11:45 a.m.

Currently, the fire is 90 percent contained and approximately 500 acres have burned.

Fire crews today are working in the air and on the ground to isolate and extinguish remaining hot spots throughout the Pine Canyon region as they pose the risk for potential flare ups.

There are no reported injuries or damaged facilities on base.

Vandenberg officials have resumed normal operations on base, however, they remind base residents to limit outdoor exposure due to poor air quality and ask that people not involved in fire response avoid fire related areas.
