More than 90 flights have been canceled at Miami International Airport Thursday after a massive overnight fuel tank fire that has created a major disruption for American Airlines, the airport’s biggest carrier, and stranded or delayed thousands of passengers.
Firefighters worked through the night to extinguish the fire, which started late Wednesday night and was under control early Thursday morning.
In addition to American — which makes up about 70 percent of MIA’s traffic — other airlines are also reporting flight delays.
