Garage evacuated at Fort Lauderdale airport after report of jet fuel leak
A garage at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport was evacuated today after after a construction crew reportedly broke a jet fuel line nearby.
The Broward Sheriff's Office said the Palm Garage was being evacuated about 12:30 p.m. No vehicles inside the structure can have their engines started because of the danger due to fumes from the leak.
Initial reports said that jet fuel was flowing freely out of the pipe line before the leak was capped, the Sheriff's Office said.
Some roads around the parking garage were closed while the evacuation was going on.
