Firefighter hurt in two-alarm fire at popular bakery next to Allen’s Drug Store

A two-alarm fire burned a popular Spanish market and bakery while sending a Miami-Dade firefighter to the hospital in Tuesday’s early- morning blaze.

By Tuesday evening, the firefighter had been treated for smoke inhalation at a local hospital and was released, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue said.

Pictures from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue show the interior of Delicias de España, 4016 SW 57th Ave., gutted by the fire that began shortly after midnight.

The fire burned next door to the former site of Allen’s Drug Store, which closed in 2016 after 60 years at the corner of Bird Road and Southwest 57th Avenue.

What started the fire, which was subdued in an hour, remains under investigation.
