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.
