Kitchen fire sparks evacuation at Coral Gables condo

A kitchen blaze on the sixth floor of a 12-story Coral Gables condo led to a two-alarm fire Wednesday afternoon.

The condominium, at 90 Edgewater Drive, was evacuated as the fire was contained to the unit in the 331-unit building but smoke and water caused damage to much of the sixth floor, according to a report on WPLG-10.

One resident was transported to Kendall Regional Hospital after falling on the stairs during the evacuation, according to WSVN. Residents in unaffected apartments were allowed to return later in the day.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue also responded to the scene.
