A brush fire that burned into Wednesday night has now spread up to 700 acres with 10% containment, according to ABC 7.

More than 250 firefighters responded in the evening to the fire near Camp Pendleton that initially covered 10 to 15 acres, spreading to at least 250 acres by about 10 p.m., according to the Orange County Fire Authority and Los Angeles Times.

The fire originated near San Mateo Campground at about 6:15 p.m. The cause of the fire is still being determined.

Late last year, a brush fire near the same area charred about 210 acres along Roblar Road, and earlier this month at least 50 acres were scorched on Camp Pendleton base near Marine Memorial Golf Course.
