Plane Lands Safely In Denver After Engine Catches Fire, Debris Rains Down


Debris from a commercial jetliner fell onto homes in suburban Denver Saturday as the plane made an emergency landing, with one large piece barely missing a house.

The United Airlines jet landed safely, and authorities said that no injuries were suffered on board or on the ground.

In a statement, the Federal Aviation Administration said that the Honolulu-bound Boeing 777-200 jet returned to Denver after the right engine failed shortly after takeoff. United said in a separate statement that there were 231 passengers and 10 crew on board, adding that they had all been deplaned and that an investigation into the incident was taking place .
