Miami-Dade Fire Rescue crews responded Thursday afternoon to reports of a roof collapse at a Northwest Miami-Dade warehouse.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Lt. Felipe Lay said the call came in at about 4:45 p.m. for a warehouse at Northwest 37th Avenue and 70th Street.

Six people were injured, Lay said. Three were treated and released, two were taken to the hospital with minor injuries and one person was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.

News helicopters hovered near the warehouse and showed a gaping hole and crews working.

Urban Search and Rescue dogs Zeus and his handler Chief Alan Perry, along with Vegas and his handler Firefighter Frank Garcia, were searching into the evening to make sure there were no other people injured.
