(Reuters) - The landing gear of a FedEx Corp. DC-10 cargo plane collapsed on Friday at the main airport in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, causing a fire that was quickly extinguished, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration said.
Video from local broadcasters shows what appears to be a FedEx cargo plane that is intact with the fire having taken place near the tail section.
The company later said the pilots were safe.
The airport said on its Twitter feed it is currently closed as firefighters respond to the incident.
