(CNN) – Airport spokesman Greg Chen told CNN that three people were hospitalized with minor injuries after the landing gear of a Red Air plane from the Dominican Republic collapsed as it landed at Miami International Airport.
The flight was arriving from Santo Domingo at 5:30 PM (Eastern time) when the landing gear collapsed and caused a fire.
According to Chen, there were at least 126 people on board. He added that three of them were taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.
The Miami-Dade Rescue Department said the plane’s fire was under control and crews were working to mitigate a fuel leak.
