Terminals at the Port of Los Angeles resumed normal operations last night, after being closed due to a fire that broke out on Monday night.

According to an ABC News wire, the port’s spokesman “estimated a few thousand employees, mostly longshore workers, were sent home Tuesday.”

With that many longshore workers missing a shift, cargo delays are inevitable. Since the port was backlogged before the fire occurred, shippers are likely to experience delays until the backlog is cleared.
