MIRAMAR, FLA. (WSVN) - Seven people are now displaced after a fire broke out inside an efficiency in Miramar.
Miramar Fire Rescue units responded to the scene near Miramar Parkway and 65th Avenue at around 10 a.m., Tuesday.
7SkyForce hovered over the scene where smoke could be seen coming out of the efficiency.
Fire officials said the blaze started in the efficiency that was added to the house.
According to one person who lived in the house, it may have been an electrical fire.
Neighbor John Isaguirre said one of the residents ran across the street to call for help.
“I was working on the truck. He came with tears on his face and he was like, ‘Hey! My house is catching on fire!'” he said.
He told his neighbor the fire started from a router.
“And that’s when I saw the smoke starting to come out of the house, from the efficiency, going inside the house as well,” said Isaguirre.
Another neighbor shot cell phone video of the smoke getting thicker.
Firefighters arrived on the scene within minutes and worked quickly to keep the fire from spreading.
“Man, the fire guys, these guys are the real heroes here,” Isaguirre said.
