    A downtown Del Mar luxury hotel and its surrounding businesses were evacuated Friday afternoon after a male caller said a bomb would go off in two hours, officials said.

    San Diego County sheriff's deputies have evacuated L'Auberge on 15th Street and Camino Del Mar as a precaution and conducted a property search after the hotel received the call at about 4 p.m.

    No bomb was found, and the hotel returned to business early Friday evening.

    Parties were sent to nearby Seagrove Park during the evacuation.
