Horror: Plane Carrying At Least 11 People Crashes After Its Engine Caught Fire Mid-flight (Photo)

A plane which was carrying as many as eleven persons, has crashed to the ground after its engine reportedly caught fire mid-flight.

A private Turkish plane has crashed in Iran during a flight from the UAE to Istanbul, according to reports in the country. 

The country's Civil Aviation Organization spokesman, Reza Jafarizadeh, said the private jet crashed near Shahr-e Kord city, some 230 miles south of the capital Tehran.

Iran's state-run news agency, quoting Red Crescent, said at least 11 people were on board the small plane.
There is no word yet of injuries.

The semi-official Fars news agency reported that the plane took off from Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates and was heading to Turkey's Istanbul.

The reports did not elaborate.

Villagers near the crash say they saw flames coming from the plane's engine before the crash, according to a report by Iran's state-run judiciary news agency Mizan.

The aircraft was a Canadian-made Bombardier, according to the Iranian news agency Tasnim.

It had eight passengers and three crew members on board, said Reza Jafarzadeh, head of the Iran Civil Aviation Organisation.

'The plane is on fire. After the pilot asked to lower altitude, it disappeared from the radar,' Tasnim quoted an ICAO official as saying.

Earlier in February, an Iranian ATR-72, a twin-engine turboprop used for short-distance regional flying, crashed in southern Iran, killing all 65 people on board.

The plane was travelling from Tehran to the southern city of Yasuj in Isfahan province when it came down in the Zagros mountains.

It is said to have collided with Mount Dena, which is 14,435 feet tall.
