MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami-Dade Fire Rescue crews worked to put out a massive fire at a Cutler Bay apartment complex Wednesday night.

The second-alarm fire broke out at 7 p.m. at the Le Club Apartments At Saga Bay.

 

Due to the intensity of the flames, a total of 26 crews were called out to battle the blaze.

Several firefighters were lifted on platforms to target the roof, which was engulfed by the fire.

“It took our aerial apparatus, our ladder trucks to get above the fire and make an aggressive-defensive attack to combat the fire,” said Kirsten Miller with Miami-Dade Fire Rescue.

 

It took nearly an hour and a half for the fire to be put completely out.

Fortunately, there were no reported injuries.

“The fire detection systems, the smoke alarms notified all the people and all the residents were out on our arrival,” Miller said.

The Red Cross has been called out to help the families displaced by the fire.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue said it is too early to determine what started the fire.
