A JetBlue airplane made a "hard landing" at Sacramento International Airpot this afternoon around 1 p.m. after "blowing two tires, sparking a small fire and causing minor injuries."
According to reports, "A passenger who was on the plane told KOVR-TV that when it landed he heard a bang and then the plane stopped suddenly."
"We were then told to start evacuating very abruptly, you know 'Get out! Get out! Get out!'" said "Elvis," the passenger in question. "I looked back under the plane, and it was on fire, and all four tires were out."
The plane made the emergency landing shortly after 1 p.m. In a written statement, according to AP, JetBlue says,"the plane appeared to experience trouble with its brake," which caused the early afternoon emergency.
A total of 15 people were inured. The Airbus SAS A320, coming in from Long Beach, Calif., carried 86 passengers and five crew members.
