CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. — A brush fire that burned 7.5 open acres at Camp Pendleton Tuesday amid gusty Santa Ana conditions is at 100 percent containment, authorities reported.

The flames began spreading across a training area on the southeastern side of the base, in the Juliet impact area shortly before 11 a.m., according to Marine Corps officials.

There were no reports of structural threats, USMC public affairs Sgt. Christopher Duncan said.

Several North County civilian firefighting agencies aided military crews in dousing the blaze, the sergeant said.

The Camp Pendleton Fire Department will monitor the area through the evening.
