“We heard a big explosion. It sounded like gas tanks or something and it started catching fire pretty quick. We had to close down, put all the cars in because the flames were unbearable,” one witness told reporters.
Miami-Dade firefighters battled the flames for an hour before they were able to completely extinguish the fire.
The incident remains under investigation. No injuries were reported.
