Police investigate sus fire in Miami

Two cars and carport destroyed by flames

Investigators are looking into a suspicious fire in Miami.

The blaze destroyed two cars and a carport on Christine Ave around 11:30 on Tuesday night, but the damage could have been a lot worse if police officers patrolling the area didn't spot flames leaping from a car.

They called other emergency crews to the scene and helped evacuate the connecting home and neighbouring unit blocks.

The fire spread to another vehicle and the aluminium carport roof before fire crews managed to contain it, but thankfully it didn't spread any further.

No one was hurt in the blaze and police are now investigating the cause.
