    Large fuel fire breaks out at Miami International Airport

    Miami-Dade firefighters were battling a major fire at Miami International Airport early Thursday.

    Drivers could see smoke billowing from the airport as they drove on nearby State Road 836 shortly after 11 p.m. The fire started Wednesday night and raged into early Thursday morning.

    The fire was at a fuel tank farm in the southeast corner of the airport, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue spokesman Capt. Eric Baum said. The fire was not near runways or the terminals, he said.

    Anyone local know if they had to evacuate any homes because of the smoke? I would think the fumes from that would be very toxic!

    I hope the firefighters are all ok. Sounds like a very dangerous fire to fight!
