As many as 30 firefighters and eight fire trucks were at the scene of a house fire Saturday afternoon after a fire broke out in the backyard of a two-story Miami house, authorities said.
City of Miami Fire was alerted to the incident after neighbors called complaining of flames in a yard located on the 5700 block of Northwest 5th Court. Miami Fire spokesman Iggy Carroll Jr. said a grandfather and two other men were pulled out of the fire.
One firefighter sustained burns in the fire, but was not transported to a hospital. Carroll Jr. told NBC 6 South Florida that the fire, which produced heavy flames and smoke, was a challenge to access.
The fire caused damage to the neighboring home and displaced five adults and a 3-year-old child.
The American Red Cross is will provide assistance.
