Firefighters battle apartment blaze in Miami Gardens
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue has sent about 20 crews to put out a large fire at an apartment complex in Miami Gardens on Tuesday afternoon.
Sky 10 flew over the scene at 21300 Northwest 9th Place, east of the Florida Turnpike and not far from Hard Rock Stadium.
Flames could be seen on the roof at one corner of the three-story complex, leaving significant damage.
MDFR says that the fire is now under control and that crews are removing the ceiling from the third-floor apartment in order to better target the fire.
Units are also conducting searches inside the apartments to ensure they’re clear of any residents.
