DANIA BEACH, Fla. – A terminal at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport was briefly evacuated Thursday morning.

The airport's Twitter page said a fire alarm was activated in Terminal 1, prompting the evacuation.

It was later determined to be a false alarm.

"We do not believe anyone pulled the alarm," a tweet said. "This appears to have been a fault within the infrastructure of the system."

No other parts of the airport were impacted.
