A brush fire blackened swaths of open terrain at Camp Pendleton Monday.

The blaze began spreading across a central training ground known as Zulu Impact Area at the military station near Oceanside in the late afternoon.

The size of the burn area was not immediately disclosed, though a statement from the Marine Corps base described the fire as "small."

No structural threats were reported.

It was not immediately clear what sparked the blaze.
