HIALEAH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a South Florida apartment fire left one person dead and sent three others, including a police officer, to the hospital.

Hialeah Fire Rescue reports that firefighters responded to the two-story building early Monday morning. Officials say the person who died and two others were in the same until. The police officer was transported as a precautionary measure after complaining about shortness of breath.

A fire rescue spokesman told The Miami Herald (https://goo.gl/dBVqId ) that the cause of the fire wasn’t immediately clear, explaining that the damage was too extensive to tell where the blaze started.
