A fire destroyed several condominium units on Tuesday.

The Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Department arrived on the scene just past 11:30 p.m. at 10772 La Placida Drive.

Upon arrival, firefighters discovered a six-unit townhouse condominium development on fire with heavy smoke and flames shooting through the roof of the building.

According to Mike Moser with the Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Department, the building shared a common roof, so once the fire made it to the roof, it spread quickly.

There were no injuries reported.

“No one was hurt, but our firefighters did manage to save seven cats and two rabbits,” said Moser, adding that the department carries pet oxygen masks, which they could give to several animals.

The two-alarm fire took approximately 50 firefighters to extinguish.

The American Red Cross was on the scene to help with temporary assistance. Some of the units were condemned because the roof caved in. Some residents were back on the scene Wednesday, gathering some of their belongings.  
Fire inspectors have not disclosed the cause of the blaze as of press time.
