Crews worked to put out a two-alarm fire that broke out at a Miami Gardens apartment complex Tuesday afternoon.

The fire broke out just before 1:30 p.m. near the 21300 block of Northwest 9th Place at the Advenir at Walden Lake complex.

Flames could be seen coming through the roof of the three-story building as firefighters doused it with water. The fire quickly spread but crews were able to get it under control.

Everyone inside was able to evacuate and there were no reported injuries.

"I was outside on the balcony and I was talking to the young couple that stayed in the apartment. They were sleeping, didn't know what happened. Opened the door and it was a bunch of smoke," one resident said. "I asked if anybody else was in the apartment. They told me 'no' and I was like 'we got to let everybody know we got to get out.'"

Police have not released any information on the cause of the fire.
