Traffic is moving again out of O'Hare and Midway Airports in Chicago after a ground stop due to a fire at an FAA facility.  Flights are starting to take off and land at the airports, but it will take some time to catch up on all the delays. More than a thousand flights had been delayed or cancelled.  Anyone slated to travel should check with their airline carrier before heading to the airport. 

Police continue to investigate the cause of the fire. Officials say a contract worker set the fire intentionally. They are looking for a reason why a man apparently started the fire. They say he was contracted to work with the FAA and was authorized to be in the building. He allegedly used gasoline to set the fire around 5:30 Friday morning. The man also apparently tried to take his own life. Officials say they found him lying on the ground with multiple self-inflicted stab wounds. No firearms or explosives were found at the scene. He's in stable condition at an area hospital and is expected to survive.  No criminal charges have been filed at this point.
