BOSTON (WHDH) -
A Dubai-to-Boston flight with 367 passengers and crew members aboard has been grounded at Logan International Airport after an engine fire that officials say was quickly extinguished when the plane landed.
Massport says a flame was seen coming from an engine of the Emirates Boeing 777-300 after it landed at 2 p.m. Sunday on its flight from Dubai International Airport in the United Arab Emirates.
"When I smelled some gas during the landing, after the landing I think I smelled some gas. That moment the captain took an unusual rotation into the airport," said passenger Fahad Jari.
An Emirates spokesperson says the "small engine fire" occurred on landing, was quickly extinguished, and everyone disembarked safely at the airport terminal.
The fire was put out and the plane was towed to the gate, where the 349 passengers disembarked.
"He said small fire and he asked everybody to be calm so I think everybody was calm actually. I was a bit nervous in the beginning when I smelled the fuel," said passenger Rami Madadin.
Flight 237 also carried 18 crew members. The Associated Press contributed to this report.
