SEASON FINALE: Tuesday, October 30 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT

A massive fuel spill in a hangar puts fire rescue and hazmat teams on high alert as they attempt to stem the highly explosive fuel from draining into tunnels underneath the airport, which could combust if the fuel is not contained quickly. Meanwhile, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) keep close watch for illegal contraband arriving from Cuba, like cigars and rum, as well as fruits and vegetables that can bring pests, diseases and infestation to U.S. crops.  CBP uncovers a large amount of concealed pills while performing inspections on the ramp. The CBP officer follows the bag inside to identify and question the bag's owner.  Then, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue (MDFR) rushes to a massive explosion at the fuel farm.  The blaze escalates to a full-blown towering inferno because the exposed fuel lines are feeding the fire. MDFR foam trucks struggle to keep up with the blaze, but are unable to get it under control.   When the emergency shut-off valve fails, there is one last resort – someone ventures into the blaze, finds the valves to the fuel lines and manually shut them off.  This is extremely dangerous, but the Fuel Farm Manager takes this chance.  With adrenaline coursing through his body, he risks his own life to save the airport from devastation!
