NEW YORK (AP) — Officials say a worker was injured responding to an engine fire on a Delta plane at New York's LaGuardia Airport.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the incident happened at 10:25 p.m. Friday after Delta Air Lines Flight 2166 from Orlando, Florida landed.

The FAA says airport firefighters extinguished the fire in the aircraft's left engine.

FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says no passengers were injured but a ramp worker was taken to a hospital.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said the injured worker was a Delta employee. Delta did not immediately return a call seeking information on the employee's condition.
