Plane Engine Reportedly Catches Fire at New York's JFK Airport

The Port Authority says there was a possible engine fire on an Argentina Airlines flight at JFK on Feb. 10 2017

People present on the ground reportedly said that they heard a loud bang and the pilots reported seeing a fire on the plane.

Emergency services in NY rushed to John F. Kennedy Airport after a plane caught fire on the runway late on Thursday.

As seen on video, Argentina Airlines Flight 1301 was on a runway when sparks flew up from one of the aircraft's engines and left a bright glow underneath the aircraft.

Flames apparently shot out from a plane sitting on a runaway at JFK Airport.

After the reports of fire, the runway at JFK Airport was temporarily closed and emergency vehicles were immediately dispatched to the area. "Yeah so I'm on the runway about to take off and another plane just landed next to us and IT WAS ON FUCKING FIRE LIKE LITERAL FIRE", tweeted Alice Zhang. The plane taxied back to the gate for further examination.

It was unclear how many passengers and crew were on board or whether they would board the flight again or take another plane.
