Power line fire knocks out electricity in Miami

MIAMI (WSVN) - A power line fire knocked out electricity for over 100 homes and businesses in Miami.

City of Miami Police and Fire Rescue responded to the scene of the blaze along Southwest 28th Avenue and 16th Terrace, just after 6:30 p.m., Thursday.

Cell phone video sent by a 7News viewer showed the flames inching closer to a parked car on the side of the road.

Fire crews quickly put out the fire that left parts of neighborhood without power.

Florida Power & Light said 158 customers were affected, but power has since been restored to the area.

It remains unclear what caused the fire.
