CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (KGTV) - Fire from a training-related activity Friday morning at Camp Pendleton poured smoke across North San Diego County.
The 15-acre vegetation fire was in the interior of the base, and smoke was visible as far away as Oceanside, according to social media.
No individuals or structures in or outside of the base were threatened, according to Camp Pendleton officials. Officials said the fire was under control.

News of the fire was first reported on social media, after users reported a plume of smoke in the sky. A witness at Fallbrook Airport told 10News, "It started small but it's getting big pretty quick."
A pilot who flew over the fire hours earlier Friday said the winds were strong and the fire appeared to be inland near San Clemente.
