NASHVILLE¬†— A Delta-operated SkyWest plane caught fire on the tarmac of Nashville International Airport Friday morning. The plane was heading to Cincinnati, Ohio.

The plane had just turned on its engine and had not yet reached the runway when the fire began, according to airport spokeswoman Shannon Sumrall.

“The auxiliary power unit caught fire but when they turned the engine back off the fire extinguished itself and the plane was brought back to the gate and all passengers were de-boarded,” said Sumrall.
