This news is about a plane. It is at the Las Vegas Airport. It wants to fly to London. It is a British Airways plane. It has a problem. Its left engine catches fire.

All 172 people must leave the plane. They go down emergency slides. This injures many people a little. Fourteen people go to hospital. Then, people stop the fire.

Difficult words: engine (the part which makes a car or plane move), emergency slides (you jump on this thing when you want to get out of a plane fast), injure (to get hurt).
