Delta plane en route to Atlanta evacuated in Boston

BOSTON (WHDH) -- Passengers on Delta Air Lines flight 2101 to Atlanta were evacuated on the runway at Logan Airport Thursday evening.

"We were taxing out to the runway and one of the brakes locked up on the right side wheel. The captain notified us that a fire truck would be following us back to the terminal and apparently the brake caught fire as we were taxing back, so they evacuated all the passengers off the plane," said Kevin Davis, a passenger who was evacuated from the airplane.

The passengers deplaned on the runway and were bused to the terminal.

Davis said everyone was calm and the captain kept everyone informed.

The flight was scheduled to leave Boston at 4:01 p.m.

The FAA is looking into the issue. All the passengers are safe. No injuries were reported.

Passengers will be put on another plane to Atlanta.
