“The fire originated on the ramp leading to the front door on the exterior of the building,” said Commissioner King. “The structure was being remodeled and, on completion, was going to be used as a voting precinct. Anyone with information about this Dade County fire is invited to call my Fire Investigations Unit at 1-800-282-5804.
