(INDIANAPOLIS) - More than 100 passengers were evacuated from a jet Thursday after one of its engines caught fire while the plane was preparing for takeoff at Indianapolis International Airport.

Officials say pilots on the Delta Air Lines flight bound for Atlanta at first thought they had a blown tire.

132 passengers aboard the jet were taken by shuttle buses back to the airport terminal. No one was injured.
