Two people are hospitalized after suffering burns from an early morning housefire Saturday.
The call came in at 5:47 a.m., according to Miami Dade Fire Rescue.
Neighbors reported hearing what they described as a loud blast coming from an efficiency behind a home just off Northwest 36th Avenue.
The force of the blast was so great it blew part of the efficiency’s roof onto a home next door.
“Units arrived to find heavy fire from the outside of the building encroaching on interior. They made a fire attack and ended up finding a couple of victims,” Ryan Rothenberg of Miami-Dade Fire Rescue said.
Firefighters were able to put out the fire before it spread to neighboring homes.
The conditions of the two people are unknown at this time and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
