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

The fire was raging early Thursday near Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. It has been reported that flights were still able to land.

There were no immediate reports of any injuries in the blaze. Video from TV reports showed flames consuming the building.
