Aventura / Sunny Isles

Car fire reported near Miami Gardens and West Dixie Ave



The Miami Herald

The City of Aventura blog posted Thursday night that there was a car fire near the intersection of Miami Gardens and West Dixie Ave, just outside of Aventura.

Aventura police sent backup to a reported car fire at that address at 8:10 p.m., but Miami Dade Police took the call, and did not have a spokesperson available for comment.

The blog -- which is not associated with Aventura's city government -- described seeing a car that was "filled with smoke" and posted a picture showing a flame in the distance behind police cars, but did not report seeing anyone injured or any ambulances present.
