    Passenger plane safely lands in New Zealand after engine fire

    A passenger plane landed safely at a New Zealand airport on Monday after a fire shut down one of its engines, the nations fire service said. The Virgin Australia Boeing 737-800 jet bound for Melbourne, Australia, landed in the New Zealand city of Invercargill after the fire forced a diversion. Fire trucks met the plane as it arrived in Invercargill about 50 minutes after takeoff from Queenstown, said Lynn Crosson, shift supervisor for Fire and Emergency New Zealand.
