SOLANA BEACH (KUSI) – A fire raged Tuesday evening in units at the Del Mar Beach Club in Solana Beach and caused the roof of a building to collapse.

Firefighters responded to the condominium complex near South Sierra Avenue and Pacific Surf Drive about 9 p.m., and found flames had spread from ground floor units to the roof of the complex, according to Chief Mike Stein of the Encinitas Fire Department, which serves Solana Beach.
