Town house fire sends 1 person to hospital with burns

A fire at a Kendall town house Monday morning sent one person to the hospital and caused a large Miami-Dade Fire Rescue presence in the area.

Firefighters were called to Southwest 104th Avenue and 80th Street around 9:30 a.m. and treated one patient with a trauma alert.

“One person was transported to the closest trauma facility with burns,” said Miami-Dade Fire Rescue spokesman Alton Drummond.

Flames were coming out of the bedroom on the second floor, according to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue.

Twelve fire rescue units were sent to the town house.
