Doral K-8 school briefly evacuated due to fire inside cafeteria

DORAL, FLA. (WSVN) - A small fire inside the cafeteria at a K-8 school in Doral briefly caused students and faculty to evacuate, Thursday morning.

According to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, a small fire broke out inside of the cafeteria at Dr. Rolando Espinosa K-8 Center, located at 11250 N.W. 86th St.

Miami-Dade Fire said smoke was seen coming out of one of the exhaust fans in the cafeteria, at around 9 a.m.

Upon examination, fire officials discovered a bird’s nest inside of the fan, which may have ignited and caused the smoke.

Students and faculty were able to return to class soon after.
