    "There were multiple vehicles that caught fire and when you have vehicles that are in for repair or even used for parts, then you have a lot of fluids, you have oils, you have a lot of flammable liquids inside that tend to burn and that obviously helped fuel the fire," said Miami Fire Rescue Captain Ignatius Carroll.
