ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities say jets are flying over smoke and flames from a large fire as they approach the runways of Atlanta’s airport.

WSB-TV reports that the fire was raging early Thursday morning near Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. WSB reports that flights were still able to land.

Authorities say the building on fire is a vacant structure that was once used as a training facility for firefighters.

There were no immediate reports of any injuries in the blaze. Video from WSB showed flames consuming the building off Campbell Drive.

Hartsfield-Jackson is the world’s busiest airport.
