LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Smoke was reported inside Terminal 5 at LAX Sunday evening.
Officials investigated the source of the smoke and almost immediately determined it wasn’t a threat or fire.
The smoke reportedly emanated from the refrigerator inside a coffee shop.
No injuries were reported. No evacuations were needed.
Desmond Shaw, reporting in Sky2, said it was a “scary situation” for some but the situation “calmed down rather quickly.”
