Hallandale Beach Fire Displaces Apartment Building Residents

posted by Jessi Minneci - 

A fire has forced dozens of Hallandale Beach residents out of their homes early Monday.

Fire officials say the blaze started about 3:30 a.m. at the Terrona Apartments on Northeast Eighth Street.

A man who lives in the apartment building said he woke up to thick black smoke and later saw flames coming out of his closet.

A neighbor called 911, and the building was evacuated.

The owner of the apartment building said all the residents were accounted for and no one was hurt.

Residents believe the cause of the fire may be electrical, but it remains under investigation.
