Watch: Plane engine catches fire as it lands at Seattle airport

Engine catches fire on Hawaiian Airlines 'ferry flight' but plane lands safely at Sea-Tac (VIDEO)

Video was posted on social media outlets showing flames shooting out of what was later confirmed to be the left engine of a Hawaiian Airlines plane.

Cheryl Mander was on her own flight when she saw the repeated bursts of flames while waiting to taxi to her gate. A left engine fire reported upon landing was extinguished.

The aircraft was ferrying in from Paine Field Airport, which is a small worldwide airport serving part of Seattle.

There were no injuries, according to a Sea-Tac spokesperson.

This comes after The Independent reported that a United Express flight had to be evacuated in July after a fire broke out at the back of the plane.

They looked out onto the runway to see an arriving Hawaiian Airlines plane catch fire.

No one was injured in the incident and the FAA is still investigating.

The aircraft "experienced a left engine issue on final approach", Sea-Tac spokesperson told media.

Officials said the plane was carrying passengers for a ferry flight, meaning only a flight crew was on board. "The aircraft is now being inspected". A SeaTac spokesperson told CBS News that the problem was likely a compressor stall, which is similar to a auto backfiring, that occurred after the plane had landed.

The plane landed safely.
