Fire at ORD Oct 28 2016

Was there an incident at the airport today? There seems to be conflicting information on whether or not this was part of drills today

Looks like an MIA bound AA flight caught fire..
There WAS a training exercise and now a real fire.

There was definitely a very real fire, AA383 is now disabled on 28R. My flight is able to get out on 22L but can see the fire dept activity on 28R. It appears fire is out now.
