EMERGENCY Engine fire on Delta flight forces #DL2469 to emergency landing at Sea-Tac International Airport

(AP) — An engine fire forced a Delta flight with nearly 270 people on board to make an emergency landing at the Seattle airport before dawn Thursday.

There were no injuries reported aboard Delta Flight 2469, from Anchorage, Alaska, to Atlanta, said Sea-Tac International Airport spokesman Perry Cooper.

He said the fire was out before the Boeing 767-300 — with 255 passengers, two pilots and six crew members — touched down.

Pilots put the fire out by shutting the engine down and allowing cold air to extinguish the flames, he said.

Firefighters were on hand when the plane landed at about 2:30 a.m. local time in Seattle, but they weren’t needed, Cooper said.
