A minivan parked near the Federal Aviation Administration watch tower at Miami International Airport caught fire Tuesday afternoon, sending up visible smoke in the area, airport officials said.
The Dodge Caravan, owned by the FAA, was used to transport equipment, said airport spokeswoman Maria Levrant.
At about 1:40 p.m. the van, which was parked and off, caught fire for unknown reasons.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue and police responded to the scene and extinguished the fire by 1:50 p.m. The vehicle is a total loss.
No one was harmed in the fire.
Smoke could be seen from surrounding roads and highways.
