Crews spent part of the morning putting out a massive blaze that broke out Wednesday morning inside a warehouse complex in Northeast Miami-Dade.
Chopper footage showed flames spreading at the building, located at 20410 Northeast 15th Court, after the fire started before 6 a.m.
No one was believed to be inside the building at the time of the fire. Firefighters first attacked the flames from inside and were then forced outside because of the dangerous conditions.
"I just want to find out the cause and I hope it doesn’t happen again to someone’s business," said Melanie Dayan, who owns a wholesale clothing business in one of the spaces. "It is a terrible thing to see all of your merchandise and your livelihood go up in flames."
About 45 fire units were called to the scene. Investigators have not said what caused the fire.
The warehouse houses about a dozen small businesses.
