Fire crews in Miami worked for hours on Friday night to put out this massive blaze. Officials say it started at this duplex home...then jumped over to the church next door. Local media quoted one witness as saying there was a small explosion, then fire everywhere, and people running out of the church. Firefighters started battling the blaze but it became so intense they had to back out of the house. They started a "defensive attack", local media said, when ceilings and roofs started to collapse. Fire fighters sifted through the debris into late Friday night and the blaze is now under investigation. No injures were reported. No immediate word on where worshippers at the church plan to hold their Sunday service.
