A brush fire at Camp Pendleton has burned 450 acres but is now 80% contained, Marine officials said Tuesday.

The fire broke out Monday afternoon during a training exercise. No structures have been damaged but two Camp Pendleton firefighters sustained minor injuries, officials said.

Engine companies, an air tanker and a water-dropping helicopter are fighting the blaze in the northeastern portion of the sprawling base. Basilone Road, the main route through the base, remains open.
