The contents of a building in an industrial area of Oceanside caught fire, but the blaze was held in check thanks to a sprinkler system, officials said Sunday.

The Oceanside Fire Department responded to a report of a commercial fire at 8:02 p.m. Saturday in the 3800 block of Ocean Ranch Boulevard, said Battalion Chief Wesley McGee.

Firefighters found light smoke coming from the building, he said.

“The alarm was quickly upgraded to a commercial fire,” McGee said. “An additional three fire engines, ladder truck, rescue ambulance and battalion chief were added to the call.”

Once inside, firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the fire. Aside from the contents, the structure itself was not involved.

“This goes to show the importance of a working fire protection system,” McGee said.

No civilians or firefighters were injured and the cause of the fire was under investigation.
