A North Miami apartment went up in flames Saturday injuring three people and sending another to the hospital, officials said.
Just before 1 p.m., Miami-Dade Fire Rescue was called to a fire at an apartment building near Northeast Sixth Avenue and Northeast 134 Street, fire rescue said. By 1:09 a second alarm fire was declared and additional firefighters were sent in to help.

About 26 fire rescue units responded to the fire, which is approximately 91 fire personal. Fire Rescue says the blaze was under control by 1:37 p.m. Three people were treated at the scene and another was sent to a hospital.
The fire was contained to a single apartment, but there was smoke and fire damage to the balcony of an apartment above. The entire apartment building also suffered from smoke damage.
A decision on whether to close the building will be made after Florida Power & Light inspects the power in the building, fire rescue said.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
