Flames damage truck, warehouse near Cathedral of St Mary's

Firefighters extinguished a fire at an industrial warehouse in Miami's Little River area Thursday morning.

The flames began to spread about 7:40 a.m. inside the warehouse at 77 NW 72nd St., near Cathedral of St Mary's.

Men were working on the breaks of a Miami Shores landscaping truck parked inside the warehouse when the fire started under the vehicle.

The men did not have access to a fire extinguisher, so the flames spread out quickly near hazardous material such as fuel. When the firefighters and their Hazmat team arrived, smoke and flames were billowing out the back window of the warehouse.

The five people who were inside the building, which housed a landscaping company, were not injured.

Lt. Ignatius E. Carroll said the fire was under investigation.
