Fire at Sunrise shopping center sends heavy smoke into air
Fire wall "did its job" in preventing fire from spreading, firefighters say
SUNRISE, Fla. – Sunrise Fire Rescue was called to a shopping center on Monday to put out a fire that sent heavy black smoke in the air.
The fire took place at about 6:20 p.m. in a shopping center near Northwest 44th Street and 77th Terrace.
A concrete fire wall that separated the business from the shopping center "did its job" and helped contained the fire, Battalion Chief Chris Sorrentino said.
One man who works at a nearby auto repair shop was injured due to the fire and taken to Florida Medical Center.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
