CNN PRODUCER NOTE A fire in Camp Pendleton area burned more than 1,500 acres, prompting evacautions of a nearby hospital. Oceanside, California resident, Maylette Brown, captured video of the smoke and flames on October 5. She says she was drawn towards the fire when she noticed the black smoke in the air. 'The smell was actually thick in my nose, and the flames were bright red with the ambers flaring as well with the flames,' she said. 'The fire started from the housing area and was pushed towards the Naval Base Hospital. The closer the fire got to the hospital, the thicker the flames and smoke got to us,' she explained.
