Just as the plane finished taxiing on the tarmac, the landing gear on its left side suddenly burst into flames. The bright fire raged for about a minute before airport staff put it out with fire extinguishers.

None of the 196 people on board were hurt, the airline said. A fuel leak is believed to be the reason of the fire.
