Firefighters extinguish house fire in Deerfield Beach – WSVN 7News | Miami News, Weather, Sports

DEERFIELD BEACH, FL. (WSVN) – Firefighters worked to put out a house fire in Deerfield Beach.

A man used a garden hose to try to put out the flames before firefighters arrived.

He suffered a small injury to his forehead because he was too close to the fire.

The family is grateful that the fire was contained and did not destroy everything.

“I think it was a citronella candle and then I fall asleep and forget, I don’t know, to put it out,” said Anibal Fernandez, who lives in the house. “Looks like it broke and caught fire. I hear the glass breaking and then when they came here there was a lot of fire.

Firefighters arrived at the home and were able to extinguish the fire.

Fernandez is an artist and said he was concerned that some of his works in the garage had been damaged by smoke.

The family continues to take inventory to see what has been damaged.
