A 1-acre brush fire sparked in Oceanside Thursday, burning north, fire officials confirmed.

The fire began at 3:38 p.m. on El Camino Real, south of Oceanside Boulevard, according to the Oceanside Fire Department. The fire was burning north with heavy fuel.

Fire officials do not anticipate the fire getting out of the area but they are bringing in extra resources as a precaution.

The fire is next to a retaining wall. Firefighters are prepared in the event it jumps the wall and threatens structures on the other side, fire officials said.

This is the second fire in the county--the Lilac Fire in the North County spread to 2,000 acres by 4 p.m. and was 0 percent contained.

By 4:22 p.m., it had spread to 2,500 acres, according to Cal Fire San Diego.
