Overheated A/C Unit Triggers Fire Alarm, Evacuation at Dallas Love Field

Holiday travelers at Dallas Love Field airport met their worst nightmare Friday morning when smoke triggered a fire alarm and caused a mass evacuation.

A fire alarm went off inside the terminal due to an overheated coil in one of the air conditioning units. Smoke was reported inside the terminal, and after firefighters arrived the issue was resolved in less than 20 minutes. Traveler Tim Ebbeck said, "The [fire] alarm went off and then they told us to go outside".

Passengers had to leave while crews extinguished the fire.

Love Field later posted on its Twitter account that all "affected passengers" would have to be rescreened by the Transportation Security Administration.

By 9 a.m., though, security lines had dwindled to about a 30-minute wait, according to the airport. TSA is moving quickly to get everyone through safely.

Love Field spokes person Anastasia Reed said, "We're doing everything on our end to make sure that this is a quick process to get everyone back in". Please be patient as we repopulate.
