Dramatic scenes at an airport in Montreal after a fire broke out on the tarmac.

The accident happened after a fire broke out on a nearby luggage-belt loader and smoke filled the cabin.

Footage showed passengers and crew scrambling from the plane, most of them sliding down the emergency chute.

About 250 passengers were on board the Air Maroc plane at the time with five people taken to hospital with injuries sustained while on the slide.

Difficult words: break out (start), tarmac (runway), scramble (move quickly), chute (slide), sustain (suffer).
