Several airlines are still experiencing cancellations and delays at O'Hare and Midway airports in Chicago Monday.

It comes after a fire was allegedly set by a disgruntled contract employee at an air traffic control center three days ago. The damage was so extensive the Federal Aviation Administration is completely rebuilding the communications network in a different park of the Aurora, Illinois facility.

For now, air traffic controllers in other regions are handling Chicago area flights.
