Fire causes flight delays at Reagan Airport

By Washington Post editors

Airport officials say a small fire at a Reagan National Airport terminal has caused some minor flight delays.

Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority spokeswoman Courtney Mickalonis says the fire broke out inside a McDonald's restaurant past the security checkpoint about 3 p.m. Monday. Mickalonis says the airport fire department extinguished it within a few minutes.

She says she doesn't know what caused the fire.

Mickalonis says 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.

What is this "Reagan Airport"? There is an airport here named "Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport", not "Reagan Airport". If you're not at least calling it "Reagan National", well, you're not from around here.
