(Reuters) - A section of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta was evacuated on Tuesday after an explosion in a maintenance shed, the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department said.

No fire or smoke was reported after the explosion around 9 a.m. EDT, but power was out at Concourse D, which was evacuated, said fire department spokeswoman Janet Ward.

No injuries were reported in the incident, she said.

Airport officials could not be immediately reached to comment.

In a separate incident, authorities reported a bomb threat at a building near the Georgia State Capital in downtown Atlanta, a spokeswoman for the Department of Public Safety said. No further details were immediately available.

Sounds like someone got forced into pulling the Swiss job.

It's always Georgia. Just nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
