CAMP PENDLETON (CNS) - A 325-acre blaze burning at Camp Pendleton Saturday was described as a "training fire" by a base official.

It was started sometime before 1:30 p.m. in Range 600, which is near the center of the base, according to Sgt. Hector Bejesus, a spokesman at the U.S. Marine Corps base.

The fire was considered under control and was "holding within parameters," Bejesus said. There was no threat to structures or populated areas.
