Two commercial planes collided and evoked a fire at Toronto Pearson International Airport on January 5, causing dozens of passengers to evacuate. A Sunwing Airlines aircraft backed out while being towed and struck a WestJet Airlines aircraft, which was waiting to be proceeded to a gate. According to a WestJet spokeswoman Lauren Stewart, there were no passengers or crew members aboard the Sunwing aircraft, but 168 passengers and six crew members on the WestJet aircraft had to evacuate through the emergency slide. As soon as the fire began, fire trucks and ambulances from the airport had managed to safely extinguish the fire. There were no passengers injured, but a member of the airport’s fire and emergency services was taken to a hospital, according to a report from CTV Network.
