October 17, 2008|Tony Perry

An investigation has been launched by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, and the San Diego County Sheriff's Department into the causes of two fires that burned more than 5,500 acres on this sprawling base in the last two weeks, Marine officials announced Thursday.

Military training cannot be ruled out as a possible cause of last week's 1,500-acre blaze, called the November fire, officials said. Also being investigated is the 4,000-acre fire that began in the Juliet Training Area on Monday
