After Atlantaâ€™s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport experienced a major blackout Sunday, Chick-fil-A stepped up to feed thousands of stranded passengers despite being closed on Sundays.
Georgia Power is working to restore electricity after a fire at an underground facility caused the power outage early Sunday afternoon,Â accordingÂ to WSBTV.
Atlantaâ€™s Mayor Kasim Reed tweeted a status update Sunday night, and thanked Chick-fil-A for providing over 2,000 meals to the weary travelers.

Chick-fil-A is usually closed on Sundays because their founder, Truett Cathy,Â emphasizedÂ the importance of setting aside one day a week for religious worship and rest. The official Twitter account for the airport tweeted photos of customers being fed and called it a â€œChristmas miracle.â€
