Sierra Front says a 370-acre wildfire burning near Bridgeport, California is now 100% contained. According to officials, the flames were sparked by a "motor vehicle crash" in the area around 11:30 a.m. on Monday. 

The California Department of Transportation and California Highway Patrol had closed a section on U.S. 395 in both direction from Bridgeport to the California-Nevada state line due to the wildfire, but it is now open for traffic.

No structures are threatened, and at the time of this writing, there are no evacuations. 

The U.S. Forest Service says the fire is burning in very steep terrain in grass, sagebrush, and timber.
