Firefighters battled a stubborn fire inside the attic of a Del Mar mansion early Monday.
Del Mar and Solana Beach Fire Departments were called to the two-story home at 160 27th Street, less than a block from the beach just before 5 a.m.
The home is located just south of Del Mar Dog Beach, west of San Dieguito Lagoon along Camino Del Mar.
The home, described as a 3-bedroom, 3-bath, 2242-square foot home is valued at more than $5 million according to an estimate on Zillow.
Firefighters quickly knocked down the fire on the first level and were spotted by SkyRanger 7 as they broke through the roof to access flames in the home's attic.
Two people inside the home escaped injury, according to fire officials.
