ATLANTA - Authorities say two firefighters suffered minor injuries while battling a fire Tuesday that filled part of a terminal at Atlanta's airport with heavy smoke.

Atlanta Fire Rescue spokeswoman Janet Ward says the blaze involved an escalator in Concourse T, filling the area with heavy smoke.

She said passengers were being re-routed to other concourses at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the world's busiest airport.

Ward said two firefighters were taken to a hospital with minor injuries. They were hurt after slipping in water.

The fire has since been contained.
