MIAMI (CBSMiami) —  Firefighters pulled a victim out of a Northwest Miami-Dade home as a fast-moving fire swept through it on Sunday.

According to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, it all happened at 1835 NW 91st Street. Around 8:20 p.m. Miami-Dade Fire got a call about a fire at the home.

The caller said there may be someone trapped inside.

As the first firefighters arrived, they realized they had little time. The fire spread quickly and kept building.

Miami-Dade Fire Chief Jason Richard explained that with someone possibly inside they needed to react.

“The fire spread relatively quickly inside.  There was a lot of items in the house, a lot of articles in the house.  So those are some things that concern us which is why there were multiple units on scene to search for the victims and extinguish the fire,” said  Richard.

Richard said it took about five minutes from the time they arrived to the time they found the victim.

“When we arrived, we found teams of firefighters still searching the house for other victims.  Luckily, they didn’t find anyone,” said Richard.

The victim was taken to Ryder Trauma Center. Their condition is unknown at this point.

Investigators are trying to determine what caused the fire.
