Del Mar condo fire causes $2M in damage

DEL MAR (CNS) – A fire Tuesday caused upwards of $2 million in damage at a Del Mar condominium complex, but nobody was hurt, the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department reported.

The blaze broke out at 9:15 a.m. for unknown reasons in a unit of the building in the 12000 block of Caminito Del Canto, near Carmel Valley Road, according to a San Diego Fire-Rescue Department dispatcher.

The fire, which was declared out about 90 minutes later, caused $900,000 in property damage and $500,000 in damage to the contents of that unit, according to SDFRD spokesman Maurice Luque, who said two condos on either side sustained smoke, fire and water damage estimated at about $225,000 to each.

The resident of the condo where the blaze started was not home at the time, Luque said.
