The Boeing 737 landed safely without incident and no injuries were reported. However, passengers described a scary scene inside the cabin.

"Basically as the aircraft was rolling down the runway, it felt like we hit a bump," passenger Fadhl Abu-Ghanem told CTV News. "Next thing I know I start seeing flames coming out of the right engine. I also felt very strong heat. I looked around for a flight attendant and couldn’t find one so I just started yelling 'There’s fire, fire, fire right engine, fire right engine!'"
