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.

Sheriff's set up a large perimiter before dropping it to just around the hotel.

The department's bomb/arson unit responded to the scene and no injuries have been reported.
