A two-alarm fire broke out at an American Fruit & Produce Corporation warehouse in Opa-Locka, Florida, around 4:30 in the afternoon, resulting in a thick plume of black smoke visible from miles away.
The Miami Herald reports that approximately 24 units from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue came out to battle the blaze. Local TV station Channel 10 says that at least a dozen tractor-trailers on the site exploded. The smoke was thick enough to force the closure of two runways at Miami Opa-Locka Executive Airport.
