Firefighters douse a potentially disastrous fire at Miami International Airport.

It broke out in the fuel tank area at about 11 p.m. Wednesday night. It took firefighters about three hours to put out the flames. No one was hurt.

One flight was delayed because of the fire, and airport officials said operations could remain slow Thursday because the fueling capacity is expected to be at 40 percent.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
