Airplane Engine Catches Fire While Landing in Denver

Twitter images snapped by the passengers show flames blowing out of the tail engine, with more flames shooting from an unidentified component on the runway just behind the aircraft.

An engine on a United Airlines passenger jet caught on fire in Denver on Sunday, forcing passengers to evacuate.

Flight UA5869 had landed at the 2:20 p.m. local time (9.20pm British time).


The Denver Fire Department is now on scene. All 63 people on board - 59 passengers and four crewmembers - were able to get off safely and without being hurt.

Another passenger, lawyer Rabia Chaudry, wrote: "Everyone is safe though shook". All our stuff is on the plane. "Waiting for a diaper bag, stroller, ID, all my personal items".

Also, the airport confirmed via Twitter that all runways were open but an investigation was ongoing. "Other airport operations remain unaffected", airport officials said at 3:25 p.m.
