Brush fire in West Broward near I-75 not a plane crash

WEST BROWARD, Fla. (WSVN) -- Broward Sheriff's Office deputies responded to the scene of brush fire in West Broward after several eyewitnesses reported seeing something fall from the sky.

It was at first feared that a small plane had crashed in the area near Interstate 75 and U.S. 27, but no evidence of a crash was found.

According to BSO, several eyewitnesses contacted them at around 5:45 p.m., Friday, saying they saw something fall out of the sky. 

However, Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue reached out to area airports, and no towers had reported any missing or distressed planes.

An airboat was sent shortly after to search the area, as well as a BSO helicopter. Neither found any signs of debris or victims.
