Fire at National causes flight delays

A small fire at a Reagan National Airport terminal has caused some minor flight delays, airport officials said.

Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority spokeswoman Courtney Mickalonis said the fire broke out inside a McDonald's restaurant past the security checkpoint about 3 p.m. Monday. Mickalonis said the airport fire department extinguished it within a few minutes.
She said she did not know what caused the fire.

Mickalonis said people were moved to the other side of the terminal, but there were no evacuations. She says some flights leaving from gates near the restaurant had minor delays. No one was injured.
