A fire broke out in a hangar at Amman's airport late Sunday, causing disruptions in service at the country's major international airfield, Jordanian officials said. Officials at Queen Alia International Airport said the blaze began in a hangar used to store aircraft spare parts. It was unclear what caused the blaze or whether there were any casualties. The fire forced delays in arrivals and departures at the airport, located about 15 miles (25 kilometers) south of the Jordanian capital of Amman. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity as the investigation was still ongoing.
