Emergency equipment was scrambled to the airfield in the Town of Maine at around 3:20 in the afternoon with a report of an airplane coming in with an engine on fire.   

The plane landed safely and the fire was put out. One person aboard the plane was reportedly evaluated at the scene by medics. 

There was no word immediately available about the flight and whether its intended destination was the Binghamton area airport. 

Calls to Broome Security were referred to Broome County Executive Jason Garnar's office.
