Denver International Airport spokesman Heath Montgomery said that as the plane was taxiing to the gate, a fire was reported and firefighters were called to the scene. Fifty-nine passengers and four crew members deplaned without any reported injuries and were transported to the terminal, he said.
“It was a very short-lived, very quick incident,” Montgomery said.
Passengers posted photos and videos showing the fire.
A video posted on Twitter showed first responders extinguishing the flames.
“Quick and immediate response. First responders on runway. Huge thanks to pilot and crew for helping to get passengers off safe,” one person wrote with the video post.
Airport officials said the National Transportation Safety Board had been notified about the incident. It was unclear Monday whether NTSB had opened an investigation.
