Passengers evacuated at Dallas-Fort Worth airport

Quote:
DALLAS, Texas (CNN) -- A security breach Saturday at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport prompted officials to evacuate three terminals and halt dozens of flights, a spokesman with the Federal Aviation Administration said.

At 8:15 p.m. someone opened a fire exit at Terminal C, allowing a second person to enter the terminal from a secured area, said FAA spokesman Roland Herwig.

The FAA cleared Terminals A, B and C and put a ground stop in place for arriving and departing flights. At the time of the breach, 13 flights were inbound and 37 were outbound, Herwig said.

After a search of the terminals, all passengers were sent through security checks and allowed back in shortly after 11 p.m. ET, Herwig said.
During the flight shutdown, which lasted about two hours, departing and incoming flights were halted, Herwig said.
