LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A small fire, which broke out in an elevator under construction at Los Angeles International Airport Saturday, prompted the evacuation of some passengers from Terminal 6.

Firefighters were sent to the airport terminal about 8:36 a.m. Saturday, according to LA Fire spokesperson Shawn Lenske.

By 8:49 a.m., crews had knocked down the blaze, but according to Lenske, smoke lingered in the terminal and fans were being used to freshen the air.

A Los Angeles World Airports spokesperson said no flight delays were reported.

Terminal 6 is used by Allegiant, Continental, Frontier, Great Lakes and some United flights, according to Los Angeles World Airports data.
