A fire broke out inside Cervera Real Estate’s main Brickell office in the middle of the night Tuesday, resulting in smoke damage, the firm said Wednesday.
No one was injured in the fire at 1492 South Miami Avenue, which took place in the office’s computer server room. The exterior of the building was not affected, though a few windows were blown out, a spokesperson for the firm said.
It is not known what caused the fire, which was quickly extinguished. Cervera has a backup of its company files on an external cloud-based server, according to a statement from Managing Partner Alicia Cervera Lamadrid.
“The building structure was not damaged and clean-up from the smoke damage is already underway,” she said in the statement. “We will have the Brickell office back up and running as soon as possible.”
In the meantime, the office’s brokers and staff, totaling about 50 people, will operate from other offices nearby, she said. Cervera Real Estate has 18 offices in the Miami area.
