Old Miami Herald Building Smokes Thanks To TV Show Burn Notice
No, the old Miami Herald building is not burning down. At least not in real life.
Burn Notice, the USA spy series filming its final season, took over the abandoned Herald headquarters this week to shoot part of its series finale. On Friday, black smoke began billowing out of the building’s western wall facing 14th Street, and pictures of the action promptly began popping up on Twitter shortly after 2 p.m..
“For a second it appeared the old @MiamiHerald building was on fire. Nope. It’s #BurnNotice filming,’’ CBS 4 correspondent David Sutta tweeted, including a picture of the smoke looming over the nearby Adrienne Arsht Performing Arts Center, which sits across from the old Herald site.
Natalie Leon, a public relations executive, was at her nearby condo building when she heard sounds of trouble from the former One Herald Plaza.
“I was working from home today. I was on the computer and heard this big bang,’’ Leon said around 3 p.m.. “You could see all of this fire."
