Flight delays continue at Mitchell Airport

The flight delays and cancellations continue for travelers on Saturday. 

A fire at a traffic control center outside Chicago on Friday triggered a ripple effect of flight cancellations across the country. The FAA is still working to get all planes back in the air. O'hare Airport canceled more than 600 flights on Saturday. At Midway, about two dozen flights are canceled.

The FAA says 36 year-old Brian Howard is being charged with destruction of an aircraft facility, which is a felony, for setting a fire at an air traffic control center in a suburb of Chicago.

It caused  two of the nations busiest airports to be on standby for hours and it quickly became a domino effect. Cancellations and delays filled airports throughout the country, including Milwaukee.

CBS 58's Lila Carrera reports.
