Firefighters worked Wednesday to subdue a roughly 2,500-acre brush fire burning on open training grounds at Camp Pendleton.

The blaze erupted Tuesday toward the northern end of the military installation, according to base public-affairs personnel.

The flames were posing no structural threats as of late Wednesday afternoon, Marine Corps 2nd Lt. Jorin Hollenbeak said.

“The Camp Pendleton Fire Department (and) mutual-aid partners are on scene, actively working containment and control efforts,” he said.
