A fire forced the emergency evacuation of an Air Canada Dash 8 aircraft in the area of Jean Lesage airport this afternoon in Quebec City.

The twin-engine turboprop propeller was arriving from Gaspe on its way to Montreal with a stop in the provincial capital.

But on approach to Quebec, a fire was reported on board.

The aircraft landed away from the airport, its passengers and crew rushed out.

The fire was quickly extinguished, no one was injured.
