ATLANTA (AP) - A large building erupted into flames early Thursday near Atlanta's airport, with smoke filling the sky as jets approached the runway.

A spokeswoman for Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport says there were no flight delays as a result of the fire. Spokeswoman Myrna White says the airport's operations team was closely monitoring the situation.

Fire officials say the blaze was reported at a vacant building once used as a training facility for firefighters. There were no immediate reports of any injuries.

Hartsfield-Jackson is the world's busiest airport.
