MIRAMAR, Fla. – A firefighter stood on the roof of a home. He held a hose to spray water on the flames that were stretching past the roof of a neighboring home on Tuesday in Miramar.
Another firefighter climbed up a ladder that extended from an engine truck that was parked in front of the home. He too used a hose to spray water.
Firefighters with two departments responded to the five-bedroom home on Southwest 24th Street, between Southwest 185th and 195th avenues.
The Miramar Fire-Rescue Department deployed five engines and the Pembroke Pines Fire Department deployed two trucks to the home at the Harbour Lake Estates gated community.
A worker who was focused on the home’s renovation escaped unscathed when the fire started.
According to Tara Smith, a spokeswoman for the MFRD, after about 15 minutes there was a partial roof collapse at the 4315-square-foot home.
Smith said the State Fire Marshall is tasked with investigating if the renovations were related to the cause of the fire.
