OCEANSIDE, Calif. (KGTV) -- One person was arrested Tuesday night on suspicion of arson for a 85-acre brush fire in Oceanside. The fire happened on the Camp Pendleton-Oceanside border, an Oceanside Fire Department spokesman said.
Jose Torres is currently in custody on an unrelated warrant, according to Oceanside Fire Battalion Chief Pete Lawrence.
Tuesday afternoon, Oceanside Police issued an advisory for residents to cease all use of drones in the Camp Pendleton and Oceanside area because aerial support was being hampered.
