If you were anywhere near Camp Pendleton today, you couldn't help but notice the smoky conditions as firefighters spent the better part of the afternoon working a brush fire in the San Mateo area.

Although a large number of Marines are training in the area this week, they were evacuated promptly.

The terrain called for fighting fire with fire on this particular incident; final acreage is estimated at 490. No one was injured and no loss of property occurred.
