Tiki hut burns down in Hialeah home’s backyard

HIALEAH, FLA. (WSVN) - Firefighters were on the scene of a massive fire that engulfed a tiki hut in the backyard of a Hialeah home, Wednesday.

7Skyforce HD flew over the scene of the fire, along West Second Avenue and 61st Street, as Hialeah Fire officials doused the flames with water.

The structure, located by a pool in the backyard, was fully engulfed by the flames and is now down to a shell.

Officials said the flames melted powerlines, forcing Florida Power and Light to cut electricity as crews worked to control the blaze.

The homeowner suffered an injury to his hand.

The cause of the fire remains unknown.
