San Bernardino County firefighters are trying to get the upper-hand on a brush fire that's burning just south of the Jack Smith Memorial Park in Needles.

The fire has destroyed an abandoned building and charred about 300 acres since it broke out Tuesday morning. Firefighters are hoping to have it fully contained by Wednesday night.

Investigators said it started when the wind blew embers from an unattended campfire.
