Blaze rips through Opa-locka industrial park
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue declared the two-alarm fire that blazed for more than an hour Monday afternoon at an Opa-locka warehouse was under control.
About 25 units — including a foam truck from the nearby Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport — were fighting the fire that started around 4:30 p.m. at the American Fruit & Produce Corporation warehouse, 12805 NW 42nd Ave. A Channel 10 report says several explosions were reported.
The Gratigny Expressway’s LeJeune Road-Douglas Ave. connector exit was closed as was part of Northwest 128th Street. The detours clogged surrounding streets in Opa-locka and Hialeah.
It was not clear Monday night what started the blaze.
