NORTH MIAMI, FLA. (WSVN) - Firefighters worked to put out a fire after fierce flames hit a duplex in North Miami.

Crews found a home up in smoke along Northeast Seventh Avenue and 121st Street, at around 4 a.m., Wednesday.

Neighbors were shocked to wake up to such an alarming scene.

“Around 4 o’clock, we saw the gulf of smoke right here, next door, so everybody start screaming, ‘Get out! Get out!’ and then we couldn’t breathe,” said neighbor Eli Nouduez.

Firefighters were able to get the fire out quickly.

Both units were damaged, and four people, including three children, were able to escape the flames.

No injuries were reported.

The American Red Cross is temporarily helping the family.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
