An early morning fire caused significant damage to Prepkitchen, a Del Mar restaurant, on Saturday, Oct. 1, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said.

Smoke was seen about 4:50 a.m. coming from the 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.

Jen Roche, a restaurant spokesperson, said “The fire was electrical and had nothing to do with the restaurant or its operations. Luckily, no one was injured but, unfortunately, Prepkitchen Del Mar will be closed for a few months while the ownership sorts out the insurance and rebuilds the space.”
