An early morning fire caused significant damage to a Del Mar restaurant today, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department said.
Smoke was seen about 4:50 a.m. coming from a restaurant in the 1200 block of Camino Del Mar, near Del Mar Heights Road, according to Sheriff's Sgt. E. J. Dayrit.
Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze, but the business sustained significant fire and smoke damage, Dayrit said.
Investigators from the Sheriff's Bomb/Arson Unit continued to investigate the cause and origin of the blaze, but did not suspect the fire was a result of arson, Dayrit said.
