The Oceanside Fire Department confirmed Thursday afternoon that a massive fire broke out at a vacant restaurant at the end of the Oceanside Pier in North County San Diego.

The nearly 2,000-foot-long wooden ship was built in 1888 and is the focal point of the coastal Southern California town not far from Pendleton.

“The Oceanside Fire Department is currently working to extinguish the fire at the Oceanside Pier,” the department wrote on social media Thursday.

“We are asking all citizens to please stay away from the immediate area.”

Video of the fire showed smoke billowing from the ship, which could be seen from Vista, 10 miles east, and Del Mar, 20 miles south. Fox 5 San Diego.

The fire also appears to have spread to the brain box, a fish hut at the end of the ship.
