American Airlines canceled flights for a second day after a fuel fire at Miami International Airport.

The Fort Worth-based airline said 190 American and American Eagle flights were canceled Friday.

The fire destroyed the main pumping system at the airport’s fuel farm.

American has to use 10 tanker trucks to haul fuel to the tarmac, which is slowing down the process, Bloomberg reported.

The wire service also reported that the airline is refueling at other airports as well as making stops in other Florida cities, such as Orlando and Fort Lauderdale.

Passengers flying to, from or through Miami can rebook flights without penalty, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.
