An engine on a Delta Air Lines Boeing 757 caught fire yesterday as it was preparing to take off from MSP. The aircraft had just pulled away from the gate when flames were spotted coming out of one of the engines. It was shut down and the flames were out before the fire crew arrived. No one was injured and there were no paying passengers on board the ferry flight. Officials blamed a fuel pressure issue for the fire but Delta maintenance crews were investigating.
