When officers arrived they found smoke coming from the open door of apartment 113.

“One individual ran out of the apartment. He did have a lot of burn injuries. He was immediately transported by one of our rescue units. They made an attempt to remove the second victim just inside the door but the heat and smoke were too extensive. Our fire units arrived shortly there after and removed one individual who was deceased and they rescued a second one from the back side of the apartment,” said Hialeah Fire Captain Cesar Espinosa.

Both of the injured were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital where they were treated for burns and smoke inhalation.
