Delta ramp worker responding to plane engine fire suffers injuries at NYC's LaGuardia Airport

ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — Authorities say a Delta Air Lines worker has been injured while responding to an engine fire on a plane that landed at New York’s LaGuardia.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the fire broke out at 10:25 p.m. Friday after the arrival of Delta Flight 2166 from Orlando, Florida.

The FAA says airport firefighters extinguished the blaze in the aircraft’s left engine.

FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says no passengers were injured, but a ramp worker was taken to a hospital.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says the injured worker was a Delta employee. Atlanta-based Delta didn’t immediately return a call seeking information on the employee’s condition.
