MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (WSVN) -- Dozens of guests were woken up and forced out of their Miami Beach hotel after it lost power early Tuesday morning.

Guests said a fire broke out inside the Days Inn hotel on 74th Street and Ocean Terrace. One guest scrambled for safety after hearing a loud explosion. "There was crackling outside the window, looked like lightning, and then the power went out and then everyone started screaming 'Fire,' so then we evacuated downstairs," said Autumn Legg.

Everyone was able to make it out safely and FPL responded to the scene to restore power knocked out by the fire.

    Some people are good at putting out fires. They're called firefighters. Others are good at baking pies. They're called bakers. But one man is excellent at both. He's a crusty firefighter, and we mean that in a really good way.
