Workers doing some sanding spark fire in Hyde Square building that houses Miami Restaurant

Sparks from a sander caused a fire that forced the evacuation of 381 Centre St., home of the Miami Restaurant, around 11 a.m., the Boston Fire Department reports.

The fire was called in by two off-duty firefighters who noticed smoke coming out of the building while driving by, a spokesman says.

When on-duty firefighters arrived, they found the workers trying to put out the fire themselves. Nobody was injured. In addition to the restaurant, the building has two floors of apartments.
