MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A family in North Miami was forced out of their home after an early morning fire.
Marie Dubre, who lives in the home at 230 NW 128th Street, said they woke to the smell of smoke and then rushed to get outside.
“When I go outside I could see nothing. The smoke, I couldn’t see. I took my mother because she’s blind. I see my nephew, he’s visiting me from Haiti, and he took my daughter and went out and I say where’s my daughter, where’s my daughter,” said Dubre.
Six of the eight people who live in the home, including two children, and several cats made it out safely.
Dubre and her family returned to the home late in the morning to see if they could salvage any of their belongings.
No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
