MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Delta airplane engine caught fire Wednesday as it was pulling away from a gate at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Just two crew members were on the Boeing 757 when one of the two engines ignited. Airport spokeswoman Melissa Scovronski tells reporters that no one was hurt and the fire quickly extinguished when the pilot shut down the plane, which was towed back to the gate.
