CUTLER BAY, Fla. (AP) — Two dozen units at a Florida apartment building were evacuated and multiple families displaced in a fire that broke out on the roof Wednesday evening.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue responded to the Le Club Condominiums in Cutler Bay just before 7 p.m., the agency said. Smoke and heavy fire was erupting from the roof of the building, Lt. Kirsten Miller confirmed.
Firefighters worked into the night on ladder trucks to extinguish the two-alarm fire at the top of the three-story building, news outlets reported. Nobody was injured in the blaze and the official cause is still being investigated.
Resident Dellvon McIntyre told news outlets the building recently had work done on its roof, but now much of that area is destroyed. Water damage also may have soiled his unit and belongings, he added.
The Red Cross arrived to assist displaced families with finding shelter.
