OCEANSIDE, Calif. – Firefighters were able to put out a small brush fire Friday in North County, authorities said.
The fire broke out in the 4000 block of Oceanside Boulevard, just near Corporate Center Drive, around 12:30 Friday afternoon, according to the Oceanside Police Department.
Around 2:15 p.m., the fire was contained and the forward progress had been stopped at two acres, officials said.
A business located on the 4000 block of Oceanside Boulevard was asked to evacuate as a precaution, OPD said on Twitter. The business has since been cleared to re-populate.
Eastbound Oceanside Boulevard is temporarily closed at Rancho Del Oro and police are asking drivers to avoid the area at this time while crews work to wrap up their efforts.
