Fire delayed Chicago flights…
Flights at Chicago O’Hare and Midway grounded due to Fire…
Now they are proceeding and at a Reduced Rate
All flights in and out of Chicago O’Hare and Midway were halted after a fire at the Federal Aviation Administration Air Traffic Control Facility in Aurora, Illinois (near Chicago, Illinois).
According to MSN, “authorities said the blaze was intentionally set by a contract employee of the Federal Aviation Administration and had no ties to terrorism.”
Over 800 flights were canceled, but again this was not a terrorist act. The FBI, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and local police and fire departments are investigating.
According to the BreakingNews.com, the FAA updated at 11:00 am that flights to and from Chicago O’Hare Airport were resuming “at a reduced rate” and places already in air can proceed.
