A flight simulator caught fire in an office building at the Frankfurt airport, forcing some 200 people to evacuate yesterday.

The fire service said one person was taken to a hospital suffering from the effects of smoke inhalation. The blaze was extinguished within 45 minutes.

Police told German news agency dpa that a technical fault likely was to blame for the fire at the building belonging to German airline Condor.

Firefighters said the simulator, much of which burnt out, contained a replica passenger cabin.
