Smoke Can Do More Damage than Fire

Two firefighters are recovering from smoke inhalation after battling a 2-alarm fire at an Aventura warehouse on Thursday morning. The fire broke out at approximately 9:20 a.m. near 20251 NE 15th Court. Firefighters were able to quickly get the fire under control.

Both of the firefighters are ok and are expected to fully recover. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Fires not only cause serious destruction and property loss, but can cause a loss of jobs and incomes. Fires can also cause personal injuries such as smoke inhalation, burns or even death. Recovery after a fire, whether at a home or a business can be both devastating and time consuming. A fire can be cause by things such as faulty electrical wiring, chemicals being too close to a heat source, a natural gas leak, negligence with chemicals or appliances, or even arson.

When dealing with the aftermath of a fire, you may be off of the job for a while or have to find a new place to live. If you have suffered injuries as the direct result of a fire, it can be an even longer recovery time. The expenses surrounding such injuries can add up quickly and become almost unbearable.
