At least four people were injured after a plane caught fire Tuesday during a crash landing at Miami International Airport.More than 100 passengers had to evacuate a plane after gear collapsed from its nose during landing and caused a fire.
A witness recorded a video showing some of the passengers were screaming and crying as dark smoke billowed. Miami-Dade firefighters shot a white foam to extinguish the flames.
Three of the 126 people aboard the RED Air SRL 203 arriving from the Dominican Republic suffered minor injuries.
Around 6 p.m., Red Air Flight 203 crashed onto the MIA runway when its landing gear collapsed on touchdown, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.
