Delta Airlines says an engine issued forced a flight from Nigeria to Atlanta to turn back and make an emergency landing at the airport it departed from.
According to ABC news the Flight 55 from Lagos to Atlanta, Georgia, left around 10:50 p.m. local time Tuesday and returned to Lagos International Airport less than an hour later.

A Delta statement says the A330-200 had an issue with one of its two engines. Delta says the flight landed safely and passengers were evacuated onto the runway down emergency slides. Delta says five passengers reported "non-critical" injuries during the evacuation, but the statement didn't elaborate.

The airline says it was providing hotel rooms for the passengers and would rebook them on another Delta flight Wednesday afternoon.

Where in the story does it say the engine caught fire, issues with the engine as said in the delta press statement is not the same as the engine catching fire.
