Chicago flights grounded after fire in air traffic control center

Reports: Daily Mail

A major ground stop that cancelled at least 800 flights in and out of Chicago this morning was partially lifted just before noon, after a fire intentionally started by an employee at a radar facility caused hours of chaos across the nation’s air travel network.

Flights have since started to arrive and depart ‘at a reduced rate’, the Federal Aviation Administration said.
