An Emirates Airline flight from Thiruvananthapuram, India, to Dubai crash-landed Tuesday in the city’s international airport. The airline said all 282 passengers and 18 crew members on board had all been safely evacuated.

Images posted on social media showed thick black smoke rising from the aircraft, which was identified as Flight EK 521. A firefighter battling the flames was killed, the Dubai Media Office said.

Flights at the airport resumed later in the day; they were suspended following the crash-landing.

Dubai is the hub for Emirates, the region’s biggest airline. Thiruvananthapuram, the city in India formerly known as Trivandrum, is the longtime source of many low-wage workers to Dubai and the wider region.
