A brush fire erupted early Thursday morning in southwest Miami-Dade.

Forestry officials confirmed that 50 acres have burned so far and the fire is 75% contained.

No injuries have been reported and no buildings have been damaged and airport officials said there have been no impact to operations so far, though traffic will be redirected if smoke becomes too heavy.
