MIAMI – Firefighters rescued a man from a fire at a scooter repair shop in Miami.
The fire started Monday evening at Astro Choppers and Scooter Repair Shop at 633 NE 79th St.
When firefighters arrived at the scene, they found a canopy-covered workshop engulfed in flames and a man screaming for help inside.
They said a man nearby saw the flames, jumped over the fence and tried to put the fire out with a water hose, but he became trapped in the building.
Firefighters grabbed bolt cutters and rescued the trapped man. He was not hurt.
The fire was quickly extinguished. It caused between $10,000 to $20,000 in damage.
The owner said he closed the shop around 6:30 p.m. Monday night.
The fire was not captured on surveillance cameras.
The same business experienced an arson a year ago. That fire was captured on surveillance video.
Fire investigators plan to review information about the previous fire to determine if they are related.
