ENCINITAS, Calif. -- A natural gas explosion and fire has badly damaged a McDonald's restaurant in San Diego County, but customers and employees escaped before the blast.

Encinitas Fire Marshal Robert Scott says kitchen workers smelled natural gas and told customers to leave. Four customers and at least four employees got out safely.

The blast sparked a fire that took about an hour to control. A neighboring optometry business had smoke damage.
