The evacuation occurred after Miami Beach Fire Rescue members responded to a call about a vacant unit at about 7:30 p.m. EDT, WPLG reported. Firefighters called a building inspector to view the structure, according to the Miami Herald. The inspector spotted a flooring system failure in the vacant unit and damage to exterior walls, the newspaper reported.

“In an abundance of caution, the building official has required the vacating of this building until further information can be obtained,” Melissa Berthier, a Miami Beach spokesperson, said in an emailed statement to the Herald and WPLG.

The evacuation comes more than a week after the 12-story Champlain Towers South condominium partially collapsed in Surfside, and a day after a 10-story condominium in North Miami Beach was evacuated due to structural and electrical concerns.
