An overturned fuel truck shut down a portion of Florida’s Turnpike on Tuesday morning in Miami-Dade County. Sky 10 was above the Turnpike extension southbound at Southwest 152nd Street about 9:30 a.m. as the commercial fuel carrier was engulfed in flames. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue and an airport rescue truck were at the scene dousing the tanker with foam. "Basically what we did was we called out our foam truck from Miami Executive Airport, they came in and they knocked out the fire, and we just supplied them with water operations," Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Capt. Paul Blake said.
