Smoke from fire fills sky near Atlanta airport
Thursday - 12/13/2012, 10:56am EST
ATLANTA (AP) - An abandoned government building erupted into flames early Thursday near Atlanta's airport, with smoke filling the sky as jets approached the runway.
A spokeswoman for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport says there were no flight delays as a result. Spokeswoman Myrna White says the airport's operations team was closely monitoring the situation.
Fire officials say the blaze was reported at a vacant building once used as a training facility for firefighters. There were no immediate reports of any injuries.
Hartsfield-Jackson, which is located south of downtown Atlanta, is the world's busiest airport.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the fire was burning as early as 5:30 am., and that firefighters were taking a defensive posture in battling the blaze. It was unclear late Thursday morning if the fire had been brought under control.
