Firefighters have made progress on a 534-acre brush fire in San Bernardino County between Mentone and Yucaipa.

Dubbed the Mill Fire, the blaze was 85 percent contained as of 6 a.m. Sunday. That's a significant increase from Saturday, when the blaze was only at 20 percent containment. Full containment is expected by 6 p.m. Sunday.

The blaze erupted Friday and prompted evacuations. Flames are burning near Highway 38. One home was damaged, but officials said the fire was contained to the attic.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
