MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. — Multiple buildings were evacuated inside of an oil recycling company in northwest Miami-Dade County after several trucks caught fire and the flames spread Wednesday morning.

Helicopter footage caught the images inside the E.M.C. Used Oil building located at 8470 Northwest 68th St. near Doral just after 7 a.m., where two trucks caught fire before it spread to other areas and vehicles.

A total of three buildings were evacuated before crews began to use water to put out the flames.

The fire was eventually put out about an hour later. No injuries were reported.

Officials have not determined the cause as Northwest 87th Avenue remains closed between 58th and 74th Streets at this time.
