CHICAGO (AP) — Southwest Airlines says it is re-routing calls to reservations after a boiler-room fire at a Chicago facility.
An airline spokesman said Wednesday that no one was injured and the midmorning fire did not affect flights on the busy travel day before Thanksgiving.
The fire was reported in a boiler room in the call center at Midway Airport.
The spokesman says workers were evacuated and Southwest hopes they are able to return to work Thursday. The airline has several other call centers.
