Barton G Warehouse Fire Caught On Video

"It was just a massive combination of flame, smoke, and ashes, it was an extraordinary sight to see." That's what Donisha Prendergast told the Miami Herald when they interviewed her about the Barton G warehouse fire that she both witnessed and caught on video.

The fire occurred at 400 NE 67 Street in Miami's Upper Eastside neighborhood and reportedly sent up millions of dollars worth of Barton G's goods like linens, furniture, and a commercial washer in flames.

Barton G's new restaurant, Prelude, opens to the public Friday at the Arsht. The restaurateur, famous for creating visual spectacle, told a Herald reporter ``There may be a giraffe or two at the party Thursday. I just have to convince the Arsht it's OK for them to eat these trees."

So, when is a fire just a fire, and when is it a publicity stunt?
