(Newser) – Seven people were injured when a Boeing 767 caught on fire as it was taxiing for departure at Florida's Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport Thursday, NBC Miami reports. Dynamic Airways Flight 405 was scheduled to depart for Caracas, Venezuela, when the incident took place; all flights in and out of the airport were suspended afterward. Three of the injured were taken to hospitals. Details are scant, but a plane behind Flight 405 reported that the Boeing 767 was leaking fuel. (Read more fire stories.)
