SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE (CBS4) – High winds are fueling a rapidly growing brush fire in Southwest Miami-Dade as firefighters work to keep the flames from spreading to nearby homes.

The fire broke out just before 2 p.m. Sunday in the area of 115th Avenue and 224 Street. Streets in the area have been blocked off.

Blustery conditions are hindering the efforts of fire crews, who are preparing to possibly evacuate homes and businesses in the heavily populated area.

The Miami-Dade Fire Department tells CBS4 News that Florida Power & Light officials arrived on the scene and cut power to about 45 customers.

No injuries have been reported.
