    What to Know

    • Fire crews arrived at the scene of the Delicias de Espana bakery at the corner of Southwest 57th Avenue and Bird Road early Tuesday.

    An early morning fire ripped through a Southwest Miami-Dade bakery that had been a staple of the area for decades and sent one first responder to the hospital.

    Fire crews arrived at the scene of the Delicias de Espana bakery at the corner of Southwest 57th Avenue and Bird Road just before 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, where they were able to eventually put out the fire and keep it from spreading to other businesses but not before causing heavy damage that included a partial roof collapse.

    One of the over 100 firefighters who responded was injured and rushed to the hospital, but officials have not released their condition and the exact injury.

    The owner of the bakery, which had been open for 21 years and recently purchased more space in an effort to expand, told NBC 6 their business is a total loss after the fire but said he does plan to rebuild.

    The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
