Smoke From Fire Fills Sky Near Atlanta Airport
United States (Georgia) - 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.
