There was some reports that it burst in to flames.... But from the photos it looks like the MSN news one was right that it had been leaking fuel.

Hopefully both on board make a full recovery

Thankfully that journo about fire was wrong. Isn't it obvious from photos? It's standard procedure to smother wreck with foam etc as precaution - something they didn't bother to research.
