Tampa Fire Rescue crews fought a fire at the Port of Tampa in the same spot where one broke out less than a week ago.
The department says the fumes in today's fire were not a threat to people nearby.
But they say they did evacuate some residents, and told others to stay inside, according to a media release from Tampa Fire Rescue.
It took about an hour to get the fire under control, and the orders to stay inside were lifted around 7:30, TFR said.
Last Thursday, a small fire at the Port of Tampa prompted a "shelter in place" alert for nearby residents.
Police tell FOX 13 the same silo caught fire today.
The tank is now being emptied, and will undergo an inspection, authorities said. The process should take about three days.
No injuries were reported.
