Miami-Dade Fire Rescue workers worked a four-alarm fire Monday evening that damaged multiple units at a storage facility in Miami Gardens.

The fire began at about 6 p.m. when workers responded to the blaze at Public Storage, 3505 NW 167th St.

Workers battled the flames for almost two hours before the fire was deemed under control, said spokesman Arnold Piedrahita.

As many as 36 Miami-Dade units plus four units from Hialeah Fire Rescue responded to the scene and began opening the storage units to check for additional damage, Piedrahita said.

Once the fire was under control, authorities used a bulldozer to clear debris that may have still been on fire as a precaution.

No injuries were reported, Miami-Dade Fire investigators were working to determine the cause of the fire.
