People admitted to hospitals with injuries have been released and normal vehicular traffic has resumed following a boiler-room explosion Friday atop the 34-story Chateau Beach Residences condominium in Sunny Isles Beach.

The city’s mayor, George “Bud” Scholl also told the Miami Herald that the explosion, which turned chunks of the condo’s 34th floor into projectiles, caused fewer injuries than initially feared.

“The two burn victims were released this morning,” Scholl said. “They had second-degree burns. It wasn’t as bad as we originally thought it was.”

Miami-Dade Fire-Rescue said six people were hurt in the incident, may have been the result of a gas explosion at the condo building, which recently opened.

The Chateau Beach Residences, located at 17475 Collins Avenue, was developed by the Chateau Group. The developer started closing unit sales in August. [Miami Herald] — Mike Seemuth
