Eye witnesses at the scene say that staff are being allowed back in the terminal after it was was evacuated earlier.
An eye witness, Sophie Burnett said:
"The fire began around 12 o'clock, they began by shutting the shops closest like Boots and M&S, they then evacuated the whole of North Terminal Landside and have stopped all publicly transport coming over to the terminal including the shuttle and the public bus services.
"They're currently trying to isolate the smoke from the building."

Police currently think it is an accident and do not think there is any injuries at the moment.
An airport worker suffered a near fatal heart attack at Gatwick Airport but was kept alive by the quick thinking actions of his boss and staff at Frimley Park Hospital.
During Geoffrey Constable's heart attack, his boss performed CPR on him for several minutes before an ambulance crew arrived.
The ambulance put him on a ventilator and he was flown by helicopter to Frimley Park Hospital where a heart attack team reopened his blocked coronary arteries.
The life-saving procedure took place 15 minutes after he landed on top of the hospital.
The air ambulance covered a 50 mile journey that would have taken more than an hour by road, but only took a few minutes by air.
Dr Achan, from Frimley Park, said:
"With the helipad directly above the emergency department we are able to receive patients from even further away by air and deliver life-saving treatments rapidly. Mr Constable's case was a good example of this."
The owners of Gatwick Airport today revealed their preferred location for a second runway as part of a £9 billion expansion plan.
