Tires of plane catch fire during landing

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (WKOW) -- At least five people are hospitalized after the tires of a JetBlue airplane caught fire during landing.

Fifteen people in total were left with minor injuries after the hard landing Thursday at Sacramento International Airport.

When the fire broke out, crew members deployed the emergency slides and told passengers to "Get Out."

The airline says it appears the plane had problems with its brakes.

At least 86 people and five crew members were on board.
