A 220-acre vegetation fire broke out Saturday at the Camp Pendleton Marine Base.

Camp Pendleton Fire Department crews were working on containment at 5:08 p.m. but the forward rate of spread has been stopped, according to a tweet from Camp Pendleton.

"It poses no threat to anything but smoke will be seen for the remainder of the day," the tweet from the base said.

The fire is in the X-Ray impact area of the base.
