Firefighters worked overnight to bring a fire at the Miami International Airport under control.
Flames broke out in the area where the airports fuel tanks are kept, causing several of them to explode.
The fire was reported around 11 p.m. Wednesday and was brought under control around 1 a.m. Thursday, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue spokesman Capt. Eric Baum said.
No one was injured in the blaze, but airport officials said the fire reduced their fuel supplies by 40 percent.
Dozens of flights were delayed or cancelled on Thursday because of the fuel shortage.
Shortly after the fire was brought under control, one of the airports concourses had to be evacuated because of a suspicious package.
Police cleared the area and any threat was reportedly contained by mid-morning.
Officials are not connecting the two events.
