A huge fire has broken out at the cargo section of the Istanbul Airport. Three people are reported injured. The fire broke out in the fuel depot section of the cargo area, where electrical work was being carried out. A short circuit is suspected.


ISTANBUL, Turkey (CNN) -- Three people are reported to have been injured in a massive fire that engulfed part of Turkey's Istanbul Airport, causing delays to flights but not closure of the airport itself.

A transportation ministry official said the blaze, which broke out in the cargo section of Ataturk Airport, was under control and that flights would continue.

Deputy Gov. Fikret Kasapoglu told The Associated Press three people were injured and that authorities suspected a short-circuit might have caused the fire.
