Firefighters in the mountains of Southern California worked quickly to put out a wildfire that was fueled by strong winds and unseasonably warm weather.

The Bonita Fire broke out around 1:15 a.m. on Friday and burned 715 acres near Mountain Center, KNBC News in Los Angeles reports. Firefighters reported the fire was 20 percent contained.

Southern California Edison cut power to nearly 2,600 homes within the area. More than 260 firefighters, including ground and air crews, were assigned to the wildfire.

There were no reported injuries and the cause of the fire is under investigation.

California dealt with record-breaking wildfires last year during the summer and fall months. Over 4.2 million acres of land burned and thousands of homes were destroyed.
