CAMP PENDLETON — A fire that broke out on Camp Pendleton base Saturday was halted after charring 10 to 15 acres, base officials said.
The blaze did not threaten any structures in the northwest corner of the base, in Area 64 near the Orange County line, a public affairs official said.
He did not know when the fire started, but officials posted a notice of the fire on Twitter about 3:45 p.m. The U.S. Forest Service, Cal Fire and the Orange County Fire Authority assisted on the blaze, including using aircraft, according to Twitter posts.
The forward progess of the blaze was halted by about 6:15 p.m. No mention was made on Twitter of what caused the fire.
The Camp Pendleton Facebook page said the base fire department ran a fire school with other fire agencies on Wednesday to practice working together.
