6. Fire started by spilled tar!
Miami, FL (AHN) - One construction worker was injured Wednesday after fire broke out at a private ground traffic control tower at Miami International Airport (MIA). According to authorities, the worker was taken to hospital with minor burns, and his injuries were non-life threatening.

The blaze broke out Wednesday morning after roofers working at the upper deck of the tower accidentally spilled a tar pot which eventually caught fire. "When the tar spills out and touches any combustible material, the heat from that tar which is extra hot, can cause a fire," Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Lt. Elkin Sierra said.

The fire appeared to be confined to the domed upper deck of the under-construction ramp control tower, which is being readied for American Airlines. The control tower will be used for directing the arriving planes to their assigned passenger gates.
