COX RADIO/MIAMI is recovering today from a fire that affected Urban WEDR (99 JAMZ), Hot AC WFLC (COAST FM), Active Rock WHDR (93 ROCK) and Urban AC WHQT (HOT 105).
It took firefighters only "moments" to knock down the flames, but the blaze did significant damage to the outside of the building and filled the inside with smoke, said LT. ROBERT HAZEN, a fire department spokesman.
Added HOT 105 PD PHIL MICHAELS-TRUEBA, "The fire started in our sister station [99 JAMZ] morning host's [BIG LIP BANDIT] FORD Expedition. Major smoke damage to the building, but we're all on the air and safe."
"As the fire burned, it looked like it was coming from the structure itself," HAZEN said. "It was actually coming from underneath the building."
The cause of the fire remained unknown. An investigation continues.
