Flights resume at Chicago airports
Chicago, Ill.- Flights have begun taking off and landing again at Chicago's two airports after a fire at a suburban air traffic control center forced hundreds of cancellations.
All flights in and out of O'Hare and Midway airports were halted for more than five hours, causing disruptions across the U.S. air travel network.
Authorities say the early morning fire was deliberately set by a contract employee of the Federal Aviation Administration.
He was found with self-inflicted knife wounds and burns, and was taken to a hospital.
