Six Hurt in Florida House Fire

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. --

Firefighters are trying to determine what sparked a house fire where six people, including two children, were injured.

The two-story house at 6505 SW 95th Ave. caught fire about 4 a.m. Thursday.

Firefighters said there were dangerous living conditions inside the house.

"Inside the home, there was a tremendous amount of clutter and, even worse, there were motor vehicles, like recreational motor vehicles, there was fuel, and these were not in a garage, they were actually in the living areas of the home," Miami-Dade fire-rescue Capt. Shanti Hall said.

Hall said it did not appear there was a working smoke detector in the house.

All six people were outside when firefighters arrived. Four of them -- two adults and two children -- had minor injuries. Two others were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition.
