A pilot in an aircraft taxiing behind the Dynamic Airways plane reported fuel leaking from it before the fire, Bergen said.

An audio recording posted by WSVN showed that an air traffic controller told the pilot "a lot of fluid" was leaking from his left engine. The controller then urgently tells the pilot that the engine had caught fire and that he was dispatching firefighters.

The plane is a 767-200 that was built in 1986, CBS News transportation correspondent Kris Van Cleave reports.
Dynamic said on its website its Boeing 767s can accommodate up to 250 people.
