Small fire at NYC airport causes brief evacuation
Sunday - 6/24/2012, 8:53pm EDT
NEW YORK (AP) - A small electrical fire underneath an X-ray machine at New York City's LaGuardia Airport has caused a brief evacuation of a terminal.
Three Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police officers have been treated for smoke inhalation after the fire under a Transportation Security Administration machine.
Port Authority spokesman Steve Coleman says the fire was reported inside Terminal C on Sunday evening and was quickly extinguished. He says the terminal was briefly evacuated to allow smoke to dissipate and the screening of passengers resumed within an hour.
The terminal is used by Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines Inc. and Tempe, Ariz.-based US Airways Inc.
On Saturday, a terminal at Kennedy Airport was evacuated for about two hours after a metal detector malfunctioned at a security checkpoint.
