Terminal One at JFK Airport suffered a total power outage Thursday, affecting thousands of international travelers.
A small fire early Thursday morning caused the disruption, according to the Fire Department.
All outbound flights were canceled Thursday with some international flights being diverted to Newark and Boston.
The Port Authority confirmed that the fire was caused by an electrical panel failure. The authority said that it was extinguished quickly, but nevertheless impacted the power of the entire terminal. There were no reported injuries as result of the fire or power outage.
