LAKE ISABELLA (KTLA
) -- Kern County firefighters have fully contained a wildfire that scorched over 1,100 acres in the Cove Fire near Lake Isabella over the weekend.
Fire officials downgraded the damage to 1,122 acres and allowed evacuated residents to return to their homes.
The fire, which began Friday afternoon north of Highway 178 and spread rapidly due to windy and warm conditions, came under control Saturday afternoon when winds calmed and temperatures cooled.
As many as 100 homes were considered threatened and some 400 area residents voluntarily evacuated.
No injuries have been reported. Collins says there was a report of minor roof damage at one residence.
About 250 firefighters are battling the blaze using local resources.
