SEATAC, Wash. (AP) - A baggage loading machine at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport caught fire but it was quickly put out.

Dave Arnold, a spokesman for Virgin America, says the loader was being used to put luggage on Flight 784 to Los Angeles on Thursday morning when it momentarily caught fire.

He says there were no injuries to guests or crew and no damage to the aircraft. He says the small fire was quickly extinguished by crews.

The aircraft was inspected and cleared by maintenance technicians. The flight departed to LAX at about 11:45 a.m.
