A wildfire on an explosives range at Camp Pendleton has been contained before causing any injuries or serious damage. The blaze broke out on Wednesday afternoon about 40 miles south of San Diego in a remote area used for military training. Aided by winds, the fire grew quickly, burning between 1,400 and 1,900 acres.

No structures were lost in the blaze, but Camp Pendleton's golf course was evacuated.

The fire has produced a lot of smoke, people from L.A. to Riverside counties have reported seeing or smelling it.

Marine officials said they have not determined the cause of the fire.
