Firefighters found heavy fire when they arrived at the Water World boat dealership on South Miami Boulevard on Wednesday morning, they reported.

Multiple units were dispatched about 6:30 a.m. to the building at 135 S. Miami Blvd.

The first units to arrive said they had to break through a gate to reach the rear of the building where the fire was located.

Fire hoses stretched across the road from a nearby hydrant forced officials to shut down traffic.

Deputy Chief Iannuzzi said the building was heavily damaged, and firefighters were still working to put out the blaze at 8 a.m.
