Wildfire grows to 3 square miles at Camp Pendleton. There are Firefighters battling wildfire at the Marine Corps' Camp Pendleton in San Diego County that grew overnight to more than 3 square miles.
Lt. Abigail Peterson said CalFire and military crews, assisted by aircraft, had the fire tearing through a training range about 30 percent contained Friday.
She says there has been no threat to personnel or structures since the Roblar Fire started Thursday afternoon on the sprawling base north of San Diego.
The region is in the grip of high heat and forecasters are warning of high fire danger.
A vegetation fire Thursday night along Interstate 10 in San Bernardino County spread to a two-story motel, forcing guests to flee. Forty percent of the structure was damaged before the fire was extinguished. No one was hurt.
