Engine fire at I.L.M.

Fire fighters rushed to the Wilmington International Airport Sunday night to control an airplane engine fire. Just before six o'clock a plane landed at the airport to refuel when it caught fire. Fire crews arrived quickly and the blaze was put out in minutes. Nine people were on board the plane at the time, but no one was injured. Authorities are not sure how the fire started, but they say an engine fire like this seldom happens. After the fire was extinguished, the passengers boarded the plane and took off without incident.
