A fire that began near Big Pine Tuseday and at one point involved more than 2,000 acres, was 95 percent percent contained by Thursday, according to the California Department of Forestry.

The fire, officially called the "John Fire," began Tuesday at about 1:30 in the Crater Mountain area south of Big Pine.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.

There was no immediate threat to structures, and the evacuation advisory was lifted Thursday morning.

U.S. 395 remained open throughout the event.
