Over 200 people had to be evacuated from a Delta flight on the tarmac at JFK on Monday evening after a small brake fire erupted in the wheels.

Delta Flight 420 to Accra, Ghana, was already headed back to the gate after it aborted takeoff because of a problem with its airspeed indicator when the brakes overheated.

The FDNY responded to Terminal 7 for the two-alarm fire and Port Authority officials said they were able to put out the flames coming from the Boeing 767’s wheelwell.
