NEW BERN, CRAVEN COUNTY -

A small fire needed to be extinguished on an engine of a plane at the Coastal Carolina Regional Airport.

According to the airport's director, the fire was sparked by either a fuel or oil leak.

A small group of people was working on the non-commercial plane's engine when the fire began.  The group used a fire extinguisher to put the fire out.

The plane has not been airborne in nearly three years.
