Plane fire evacuates 100 at SFO
SAN FRANCISCO Only two pilots were onboard at time and one was sent to the hospital for minor injuries, airport Duty Manager Lily Wang said. The cockpit of the cargo plane caught fire around 10:15 p.m., on an ABX Boeing 767 flight, said Wang. It was parked at Plot No. 11 in a remote area of the airport, Federal Administration Aviation spokesman Bruce Nelson said. Workers at an air mail facility were evacuated because "the smoke was so thick," said Wang. She said no other injuries were reported and the cause is still under investigation. The plane will be unusable for "a while," she said.
