Four hurt slightly when Delta jet lands in Atlanta

ATLANTA (AP) -

Firefighters say four people received minor injuries when a Delta Air Lines flight had a troubled landing in Atlanta.

Atlanta Fire Department Capt. Jolyon Bundrige said 49 passengers were evacuated from Flight 2284 after it landed Saturday around 4:15 p.m. at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. He said none of the injured was hospitalized.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said the flight from Pittsburgh suffered either a blown tire, a locked-up brake or perhaps both - causing a fire. Bundrige said fire crews sprayed foam to extinguish the blaze near the plane's right engine.

Delta spokeswoman Leslie Parker said that only a brake overheated and the engine did not catch fire.

Flight tracking website FlightAware.com lists the flight as being a McDonell-Douglas MD-88 flying from Pittsburgh to Atlanta.
