DANA POINT, Calif. (AP) - Officials have shut down a popular Southern California beach because of elevated bacteria after 900 gallons of sewage spilled into the water.

The Orange County Health Care Agency said Sunday that Baby Beach and nearby swimming docks in Dana Point are closed for at least three days.

The area is a favorite for families with young kids because of the lack of big waves.

Health officials say the spill was caused by a blockage in a sewer line.
