A warehouse fire grew so great on Wednesday afternoon that Fort Lauderdale firefighters used water from a nearby canal to douse the flames.
Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue responded to the two-alarm fire in the 6600 block of Northwest 17th Avenue around 9 a.m. The nearby area was under voluntary evacuation until 3 p.m., when officials opened up all but the closest half block.
One firefighter was sent to Holy Cross Hospital with injuries.
