According to the City of Miami Springs, students at AIE Charter School and students at the adjacent Miami Springs Middle School were temporarily evacuated due to a concern over the smell of gas.

According to the city, Miami-Dade Fire ruled that the smell was not from a local gas leak and that the concerning smell may be coming from the west.  The source is suspected to be at the Florida East Coast Railway or the Hialeah Water Plant.

This incident may cause some concern over the controversial New Fortress Energy LNG (Liquid Natural Gas) gas plant located at the FEC rail yard adjacent to Miami Springs.
