Ten airport workers, including ground crew and emergency responders, suffered smoke inhalation injuries that The Associated Press described as “minor.”

Lufthansa said it was not clear what led to the blaze. Images showed significant burn marks around the flight deck and front of the A340. The A340 was painted in a special Star Alliance livery.

“The aircraft is heavily damaged,” Lufthansa said in a statement to Reuters, adding to the news agency that the aircraft had been scheduled to used Monday for Lufthansa Flight 426 from Frankfurt to Philadelphia.
