(Update) Officials at Newark Liberty International Airport are looking into the cause of a transformer fire that caused long security lines yesterday. The blaze prompted authorities to evacuate the C-1 wing around 11:00 a.m. as smoke filled concourse. United is the only airline to operate out of that terminal. A spokesperson says all departing and arriving flights from that wing were rerouted. Officials say the airport ran on backup power sources while utility companies worked to restore power. No one was injured in the blaze.
