BOSTON (CBS) – The fuel pump system at Logan Airport is now operational once again following a fire Tuesday.

The fire was in one of 12 underground pumps that provide fuel for planes.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030′s Karen Twomey reports

There was little damage and no one was hurt.

But about 15-percent of the flights at the airport were affected.

Several were cancelled and Massport had to bring in more than 200 cots so stranded passengers had somewhere to sleep overnight.

Most flights were back on schedule Wednesday morning.

As always, Massport suggests calling your airline before heading to the airport to catch your flight.

The cause of the fire is not known, but authorities said it does not appear to be suspicious.  There is speculation that a bearing may have overheated.
