The cause of a stubborn, three-alarm warehouse fire has been labeled accidental by the Broward Sheriff Fire Marshal’s Bureau and State Fire Marshal investigators.
Smoking materials discarded in a trash can by someone leaving the business around 6 p.m. Thursday smoldered for several hours until a 9-1-1 call was received at 9:15 p.m., according to investigators. Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue units from Lauderdale Lakes responded to a report of smoke coming from a warehouse at the above location. First arriving units found heavy black smoke coming from one of the bays. After firefighters forced entry, they encountered a fast-moving fuel fire that had extended into an adjacent business. Chemicals, solvents, hazardous materials and a heavy combustible load caused a very hot fire that drove firefighters out of the building. An exterior attack was instituted using “Chemical 6,” a specialized foam/chemical agent tanker stationed at Port Everglades that is designed for large fuel and chemical fires.
A third alarm was called at the peak of the fire, calling in approximately 75 firefighters from five departments. Several firefighters were treated on the scene for exhaustion late Thursday night, but none of them required transport. The blaze was brought under control in about 90 minutes and crews remained on the scene all night dousing flare-ups.
Fumes from the chemicals were still emanating from the warehouse Friday morning and BSFR’s Hazardous Materials Team responded back to the scene to further identify the hazards and ventilate the structure so investigators could enter the building. One firefighter was taken to Broward General Medical Center late Friday morning for treatment of heat exhaustion. As of this release, he was reported in good condition.
The Daily Bread Food Bank, located in the affected warehouse complex, lost its entire inventory of goods. Health Department officials condemned the food due to chemical contamination secondary from the fire The City of Lauderdale Lakes, BSO, and community partners immediately identified a temporary acceptance point for donations for the food bank that operated until 6 p.m. Friday. On Saturday, they will resume normal drop-offs at their new location at 2501 SW 32 Terrace, Pembroke Park from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. For more hours and information about the Daily Bread Food Bank, call or 888-633-9861.They are seeking donations of non-perishable foodstuffs such as canned goods including vegetables, meats and tuna fish as well as protein items, bread, cereal, juice and juice boxes, peanut butter, jelly and personal care items like shampoo, soap, toilet paper and hygiene products.
