Passengers on a Spirit Airlines had a frightening landing in Atlanta on Sunday morning when their plane caught fire on the tarmac after one of its brakes overheated.

A statement on the Atlanta airport’s Twitter account said that the incident was due to brakes’ catching fire and that no injuries were reported.
