MEDLEY, FLA. (WSVN) - Firefighters worked to put out a junkyard fire that broke out in Medley.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue crews responded to the scene of the blaze at Best Auto Parts, located near Northwest 84th Avenue and 71st Street, Friday afternoon.
7Skyforce hovered above the scene as cars, boats and cars were engulfed by flames and thick, dark smoke billowed into the air.
Gas compartments and tires from the cars have made it a challenge for crews, who have requested a foam truck as they work to contain the two-alarm fire.
Smoke from the fire could be seen from the Palmetto Expressway to the east.
Drivers were urged to avoid the area, and residents who live near the junkyard were urged to stay indoors as crews worked to put out the fire.
No injuries were reported.
