    Police have closed the north side of NE 163rd Street between W. Dixie Highway and Biscayne Boulevard after power lines fell on some shrubs, causing them to go on fire, authorities said.

    A Miami-Dade Fire Rescue truck and police cars blocked the street in North Miami Beach. Traffic was backed up, and police were directing cars on the streets.

    Chopper footage showed burned vegetation by the sidewalk.

    Florida Power & Light, which has crews on the scene, said the wires are inactive and there are no power outages.

    There was no word on the cause of the incident.
