Hard work by firefighters paid off Thursday as their containment lines held a 340-acre wildfire on Mt. Baldy despite gusty wind and hot, dry weather, officials said.

"It got pretty breezy today but it didn't seem to have too much of an impact on the fire," said U.S. Forest Service spokesman Robert Brady.

The blaze on the flanks of the 10,064-foot-high mountain was 25% contained.

Extra hand crews helped put lines around the fire to protect homes to the south.
