Just in: United Plane Engine catches fire just before takeoff at Chicago's O'Hare Airport (VIDEO) | The Gateway expert

An engine of a United Airbus A320 caught fire just before takeoff at Chicago's O'Hare Airport on Monday.

Video from a passenger showed smoke coming from the plane's wing.

“I felt the impact on my window. When I looked, the engine was on fire and smoke was coming out,” passenger Ivan Paloalto told ABC 7 Chicago.

ABC7 Chicago reported:

A plane's engine caught fire Monday afternoon at Chicago O'Hare International Airport, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The FAA said United Flight 2091 to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport aborted its takeoff after it caught fire while still on the taxiway around 2 p.m. Arrivals at O'Hare were temporarily halted.

United said the plane, an Airbus A320, was towed to the gate. All 148 passengers have left and no injuries were reported.

United said those passengers were put on another plane to make their journey, and delays were minimal.

Last month, a 25-year-old United Airlines Boeing 737 landed at an Oregon airport with a missing exterior panel.

A United Airlines Boeing 737 Max 8 suffered a gear failure several weeks ago and crashed off the runway at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston.

The plane's acceleration comes one day after a United Airlines Boeing 777 plane had to make an emergency landing after losing a tire during takeoff.

The United plane was taking off from San Francisco when one of the plane's six tires came loose, damaging several cars in the parking lot. The flight was diverted to LAX, where it landed safely.

In January, a large piece of an Alaska Airlines Boeing 737 MAX exploded in mid-air.

The plane door flew off as Boeing focused on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) hiring practices over passenger safety.
