A JFK-bound JetBlue flight is evacuated in Puerto Rico after one of its engines catches fire.

Airport officials in San Juan say the plane was preparing to take off Saturday night, but the pilot stopped it before it became airborne.

A viewer sent in this video that shows firefighters at work just after 7 p.m.

All 186 passengers on board got off safely, but some suffered minor injuries during the evacuation.
