Vehicle fire at Atlanta airport snarls traffic

December 29, 2018

JONESBORO, Ga. (AP) — A vehicle fire at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport sent a plume of thick black smoke over the north terminal canopy, creating a traffic nightmare for many.

WSB-TV reports photos show a burned-out white truck or SUV, heavily engulfed in flames Saturday.

Firefighters had gotten the blaze under control by around 4:30 p.m. The airport’s official Twitter account said the issue was resolved.

It’s unclear if anyone was injured or how the fire started.
