Computer catches fire on plane at SRQ Airport

SARASOTA (WWSB) - An emergency situation took place at Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport on Friday night.

Passengers had to be evacuated earlier in the evening after a computer caught fire on a plane that was already on the tarmac waiting to go to Charlotte.

ABC7 spoke to a passenger who said she was sitting in the front row. She told us that there was a lot of smoke and the fire started toward the back of the plane.

Everybody was evacuated safely and those passengers involved immediately tried to re-book their flights.
