Northwest Miami-Dade Fire Chars, Destroys Car

A car was destroyed in a Monday night fire that ripped through northwest Miami-Dade, authorities said.

The fire was reported at 10:20 p.m. in the area of Northwest 25th Avenue and 74th Street.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue officials arrived at the scene to find the vehicle fully engulfed in flames. Crews worked to quickly extinguish the fire, though the car was destroyed.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is unknown.

Firefighters warn drivers that if your car ever catches on fire, pull over to a safe location and shut off the engine.

Shutting off the engine will stop the flow of fuel, which can prevent a full-blown fire from occurring, authorities said.
