Four alarm warehouse fire in Northwest Miami-Dade
Firefighters worked feverishly utilizing power saws to cut through metal doors in order to find and extinguish multiple fires throughout the storage complex. In a complex consisting of more than 100 storage units, well over 40 units were involved. Over 36 MDFR units responded to this 4-alarm blaze which brought over 125 firefighter/paramedics to engage in this challenging firefight. The blaze was declared under control within three hours. Unfortunately, one MDFR firefighter suffered minor burns while fighting the fire and was transported to a local hospital for further treatment.
MDFR units remain working on the scene and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
