Fire seen in engine halts jet departure at LAX
LOS ANGELES (AP) - An American Airlines jet preparing to depart Los Angeles International Airport for Chicago has experienced an apparent engine fire.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says that according to preliminary information Flight 1060 had just pushed back from the gate around 5:50 a.m. Wednesday when fire was seen coming out of the left engine.
Gregor says the crew of the Boeing 737-800 shut down the engine and the fire went out.
Airline spokeswoman Mary Frances Fagan says the aircraft was towed back to the gate and all passengers were put on another flight.
The FAA will work with the airline to determine the cause of the fire.
