Southwest Airlines says it is re-routing calls for reservations after a boiler-room fire in its call center at Midway Airport.
An airline spokesman said Wednesday that no one was injured and the midmorning fire did not affect flights on the busy travel day before Thanksgiving.
The spokesman says workers were evacuated and Southwest hopes they are able to return to work Thursday. The airline has several other call centers.
