Miami-Dade firefighters and forestry personnel were “mopping up” the flames at Southwest 115th Avenue and Southwest 224th Street, said forestry Duty Officer David Rosenbaum.

Though some homes or buildings were at one point at risk of catching fire, none did, Rosenbaum said. No one was hurt in the fire.
