185 passengers evacuated as aircraft catches fire at Eindhoven Airport

An aircraft has reportedly caught fire at Eindhoven Airport in the Netherlands. 185 passengers had to be evacuated from the flight just as it was preparing to take off.

There are no reports of any injuries. It seems that 15 emergency vehicles were sent to deal with the problem, but the passengers were all evacuated quickly and with no problems.

Eindhoven Airport was in the news earlier this year when a knife-wielding man was shot by police. That incident came just a few days after the Norway terror attacks, at a time when Europe was on particularly high alert.
