A plane reportedly ran off a runway and then caught on fire.

This happened late Thursday afternoon and details are still scarce.

MyStateline - Airport authorities said a plane went off the runway, and caught fire.

There is no word of how many passengers were on board, but a King Air plane can hold up to ten people.

Fire crews from multiple local agencies were called out around 3:45 p.m.

No reports of injuries or fatalities have been made yet but this is still developing.

This is the second incident involving a plane accident in Rockford in just the past week. Earlier this week a small plane missed the runway across the street from Auburn High School, injuring one.
