DANIA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Officials are saying 14 people suffered injuries when a plane’s engine caught fire at Fort Lauderdale’s airport.

Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue spokesman Mike Jachles says one person endured burns that were not life-threatening, while the rest had bumps, bruises, sprains or were complaining of stress. All were taken to hospitals.

Jachles says 101 passengers and crew were onboard Thursday’s Dynamic Airways flight departing Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport. The Boeing 767’s left engine caught fire as it taxied for takeoff for a flight to Venezuela.

Dynamic is a 5-year-old airline that connects Fort Lauderdale, New York, Venezuela and Guyana. It operates seven 767s.
