VIDEO: A fire erupted Monday night at a popular seafood restaurant in Palmetto Bay.
A viewer sent Local 10 News video showing flames billowing from the tiki roof at the Golden Rule Seafood restaurant on South Dixie Highway and East Evergreen Street.
Another viewer sent in video from a Fourth of July celebration nearby.
We’re told the fire happened just before 10 p.m.
A photo taken at the scene shows an orange blaze burning from afar as dark smoke billowed into the air.
There’s no word yet on what caused the fire, however a firefighter told Local 10 News reporter Parker Branton that it’s possible fireworks could be to blame because the tiki area was so dry and easy to ignite.
Leftover fireworks were spotted just a few steps away from where the fire ignited.
The outside of the restaurant, where most people would dine, was left charred.
