The cargo company said that it would conduct an inspection to determine the cause of the incident.

Flightaware data showed that the aircraft involved in the incident was a Boeing 747-8 which is powered by four General Electric GEnx engines. News agency Reuters reported quoting Miami-Dade Fire Rescue that no injuries were recorded but it remained unclear how many crew were on board.

This comes as Boeing has been engulfed in a crisis since an Alaska Airlines MAX 9 airliner made an emergency landing earlier this month after part of its fuselage broke off shortly after take-off from Oregon. The incident resulted in US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to temporarily ground 171 aircraft for safety checks.
