Air India Mumbai-Ahmedabad flight aborts takeoff after fire detected in port engine, all safe .

Mumbai: An Air India Mumbai-Ahmedabad flight had to abort takeoff after a minor fire was detected in the port engine at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport on Sunday.

There were no immediate reports of any casualties, the airport officials said.

According to ANI, the incident happened around 9.21 pm when the Airbus A-321 flight AI 091, with 182 passengers, was getting ready for takeoff.

Barely five minutes later, an airport ground official who was following the aircraft, reported "a visible fire in the port engine" and the flight pilot in-charge switched off both the engines and aborted the takeoff.

The aircraft was then towed to the bay for further examination after 10 minutes.
