Dynamic Airways Jet Catches Fire At Florida Airport, Passengers Evacuated

Passengers were forced to evacuate a Dynamic International Airways' Boeing 767 headed for Venezuela on Oct. 29 after the plane's engine caught fire on the airport runway in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, officials said.

There were "several injuries" after the engine caught fire, Broward County Sheriff's Office said in a Twitter post.

Passengers were evacuated via slides onto the runway at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport about 12:45 p.m, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement.

The U.S. agency also said the plane had experienced a fuel leak before takeoff.

A report on CNN showed one person being led away from the scene on a stretcher. The number of people onboard and their condition was not immediately known, an airport spokesman told WSVN local television.

The Greensboro, North Carolina-based carrier said on its website that it has operated wide-body aircraft since 2009.

Dynamic did not immediately return a request for comment.
