A car caught fire in the Flamingo Garage at Miami International Airport, tying up traffic into the airport early Friday morning, officials said. No one was hurt in the blaze, they said.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue officers arrived at the scene around 7 a.m. and put out the fire, though airport officials said travelers should expect slowdowns in traffic to persist Friday. Airport officials said the cause of the fire was an electrical short, though it was unclear what had triggered it.
