Fire prompts evacuation at Newark Liberty terminal (4/4/16)

NEWARK - An electrical fire inside Newark Liberty International Airport’s Terminal B prompted two evacuations Monday morning.

The fire sent a lot of smoke into the terminal. Officials believe the fire sparked just after 1 a.m. inside a boiler room ceiling. The terminal was evacuated as a precaution, and the fire was quickly extinguished.

The fire rekindled a short time later and forced another evacuation. There was no report of any injuries in either incident.

The terminal was ventilated and operations at the airport resumed as normal.

The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
