August 12, 2018

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — Officials say emergency crews put out a brake fire on an airplane that landed at a West Virginia airport.

WSAZ-TV reports that the Ceredo Fire Department said crews were called Sunday morning to Huntington Tri-State Airport. Officials said an airplane had made an unscheduled landing at the airport after reporting possible issues with one of the flaps.

Crews noticed that there was actually a problem with one of the brakes, which was on fire. The small fire was extinguished and the airplane was then handed over to the flight crew. No injuries were reported.

Fire crews from Kenova, England Hill, Lavalette and Prichard also responded to the airport.
