Firefighters have fully surrounded a 145-acre wildfire in Southern California.

Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Greg McKeown says the fire was 100 percent contained by 6 p.m. Wednesday.

McKeown says all units have been released from the scene.

The fire, which broke out Monday, burned in a bowl-shaped valley full of dense brush about a dozen miles northeast of San Juan Capistrano. No homes are nearby.

Three injuries were reported.

McKeown says crews took advantage of ocean winds and higher humidities that slowed the spread of the fire.
