Fire breaks out at used car dealership
MIAMI (WSVN) -- An overnight blaze at a South Florida car dealership has charred several vehicles and destroyed the business.
The fire broke out on 5601 West Flagler Street, early Friday morning. One man who was in the area at the time witnessed the fire. "As I was walking the dog, I heard a big bang, and all of a sudden I look to the left, and I see black smoke everywhere, and the flames were coming from the car dealership," said Pablo Padron.
Firefighters quickly put out the intense blaze. A man hired by the business to watch over the place lives on the property. He managed to escape the fire without any injuries.
Officials are now working to determine the cause of the fire.
This fire comes after two other fires erupted at the business in the past year. Those fires were both ruled suspicious by fire officials.
