CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - An electrical fire on a moving sidewalk made parts of Charlotte Douglas International Airport smoky, but it was quickly brought under control.

The Charlotte Observer (http://bit.ly/1DMK1YX ) reports that five people were treated at the scene and released.

Airport spokeswoman Lee Davis told the newspaper that firefighters dealt with the electrical problem with a moving sidewalk between Concourse D and Concourse E. A limited evacuation took place, but the airport remained open.

American Airlines spokesman Casey Norton said departing traffic was halted for about an hour, affecting 31 flights. But officials were getting the system back on schedule by the late afternoon.
