A fire at a UPS Hub in suburban Chicago damaged nearly 2,000 packages and forced hundreds of workers to evacuate.

A UPS spokesperson says seven trailers on a loading dock caught fire. Most of the damage was contained to two trailers. The spokesperson says most of the packages that were damaged or destroyed were headed to New Jersey, Denver and Dekalb, Illinois.

Fire officials do not know what started the fire.
