A large fire occurred on the afternoon of this past Sunday in the city of Hialeah when flames began to engulf a complex of houses located near 22nd Street and East Sixth Avenue. The incident affected more than 50 people, belonging to about 10 families.

“It was a big wildfire when we got here,” argued David Rodríguez, District Chief of the City of Hialeah Fire Department, when interviewed by the local press that covered the news.

During much of the Sunday afternoon, fifty firefighters tried to put out the flames and for that task they had to ask for help from the specialized forces of Miami-Dade County.

“It ended up being a second fire alarm that basically jammed our entire city, so we asked for help from the county,” Rodríguez confessed.

Authorities said the fire started in one of the units in the front and quickly spread to the joint units in the rear. Firefighters on the scene were able to remove all residents from their homes without regretting loss of human life or injury.

Miami-Dade shooting leaves 2 dead, 25 injured

This past weekend another event shocked Miami Dade County when, as a result of a mass shooting, 2 people lost their lives and another 25 were injured.

Alfredo Ramírez, chief of the Miami-Dade Police Department, called the violent incident an “act of cowardice.”

“I am on the scene of another cowardly and selective act of gun violence, where more than 20 victims were shot and 2 sadly died. These are cold-blooded killers who fired indiscriminately into a crowd and we will seek justice. My condolences to the family of the victims,” Ramírez said on his Twitter account.
