Homes near Camp Pendleton were threatened by a second-alarm brush fire burning through the area, fire authorities said Monday afternoon.

The fire started at about 4 p.m. between the south end of Camp Pendleton and homes on Douglas Dr., according to the Oceanside Fire Department.

As of about 5:30 p.m., the fire had burned between 15 and 20 acres but was no longer a threat to homes.

Officials said the flames were burning through a riverbed, opposite of homes on the south side.

The department has requested additional engines. Camp Pendleton firefighters are assisting in knocking down the flames.

No evacuations were ordered and no homes were damaged.
