The county’s Department of Environmental Health has closed a long stretch of beach from Grandview Street in Leucadia to Moonlight Beach in Encinitas.

The reason: A fuel spill of unknown origin.

The county has not yet offered more details about what caused the spill, what the substance is or how long it will affect coastal water quality. We’ll have more on this later today.
