SAN DIEGO — Officials announced Saturday evening that the fire burning in East Miramar was 100-percent contained.
The spread of the fire had been halted at roughly 100 acres by late afternoon Friday, officials said.
The wildfire blackened swaths of hilly, open terrain in the northeastern reaches of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.
Crews with the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department helped base firefighting crews extinguish the blaze, which was posed no structural threats, Capt. Matthew Gregory, director of communications for the northern San Diego USMC station, said on Friday.
