CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (AP) — A wildfire that broke out last weekend at the Marine Corps' Camp Pendleton has been contained.
A base statement says the blaze was fully contained as of 6 p.m. Wednesday but firefighters will continue mop-up operations and watch for flare-ups.
The fire erupted Saturday and burned 2,236 acres, or nearly 3.5 square miles.
The Marine Corps says the fire did not erupt in an artillery impact area and there was no training scheduled nearby. The cause remains under investigation.
