A fire at a Miami Beach apartment building displaced at least 55 people Wednesday night, Miami Beach fire rescue said.
Fire rescue contained the blaze in a single unit at the Mantell Plaza, 255 W. 24th St., but the smoke from the fire set off the hotels sprinklers and damaged about 75 apartments, said fire rescue spokesman Adonis Garcia.
Fire rescue was called about 6:30 p.m. to respond to a suspicious fire in a third-floor apartment at the Art Deco-style building off Collins Avenue.
Garcia said no injuries were reported and that he did not expect the residents would be able to return before Thursday. The cause of the fire and the identity of the third-floor apartments resident were not immediately released.
A dog owned by the resident was found unconscious due to the fire, but was resuscitated by rescue workers.
The Red Cross was on the scene to arrange overnight hotel rooms for the displaced residents.
