Fire crews responded to the north side of Miami International Airport in the area of Northwest 36th Street.

The semi-truck was seen stopped next to the Clarion Inn and Suites, where hotel guests were evacuated as a safety precaution.

As a result of the fire, westbound 36th Street at South Drive was shut down. All lanes of traffic reopened at 3:30 p.m.

Eastbound at Red Road was shut down momentarily but has since reopened.
