Miami Fire Rescue assisted Miami Beach Fire Rescue  to contain the flames and heavy smoke that started to affect nearby buildings.

No adjacent structures have been evacuated.

Fire officials say it is too early to determine whether the fire was the result of arson or if it connected to a string of fires to abandoned buildings.
