The brush fire that scorched a little more than seven acres on Camp Pendleton is now 100 percent contained, according to Camp Pendleton Scout:

The CP (Camp Pendleton) fire department will monitor the area through the evening.

The blaze ignited at 10:55 Tuesday morning in the Juliet impact area on the southeastern side of base.

The National Weather Service issued a Red Flag Warning for San Diego's inland valleys, coastal foothills, and mountains:

According to the Santa Ana Wildfire Threat Index, San Diego County is under moderate threat for significant fire activity, meaning that upon ignition, fires will grow rapidly and will be difficult to control.

City News Service reports that as of 11:30 Tuesday morning, Cal Fire had not been asked to help out with firefighting duties:

A sheriff's dispatcher said personnel with her agency also were not involved in monitoring the blaze.
