Delta plane catches fire after landing in Seattle

Surveillance video from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) shows the moment a mechanical malfunction sparked a fire on Delta Flight 604 after it touched down from Cancun, Mexico, on May 6, 2024.

The plane was an Airbus A321neo that was less than 2 years old, according to Delta Spokesperson Morgan Durrant. There were 189 passengers, two pilots, and four flight attendants on board at the time.

Video shows the chutes deploying and passengers evacuating to the ramp. While a few passengers were able to exit via the jet bridge, the majority went down the slides.

The fire near the nose of the Airbus jet was caused by a mechanical malfunction. A SEA spokesperson said a short in an electric cord caused the fire and had since been repaired.

Officials say despite no visible fire when the Port of Seattle Fire Department arrived, firefighters sprayed water on the area anyway.
