Peruvian Interior Minister, Carlos Basombrio said the fire
had possibly started when the plane’s wing scraped the runway.
Speaking to the local media, Basombrio said: The plane
couldn’t stop on the runway and they made a maneuver to stop it with the wing
and that appears to have caused the fire.
However, investigation on the reason for combustion has been
commenced.
