TVN24 is reporting that a Boeing 767 flying from Newark N.J., to Warsaw has crash-landed in the Polish capital.

No casualties or injuries have been reported so far among the 230 people on board, although a small fire broke out that had to be extinguished by emergency services.

The incident, which was documented by video surveillance footage, shows that the plane touched down without landing gear, and slid down the runway but did not tip over, and finally grinded to a halt.

From what is known, the airplane was forced to circle over the Warsaw airport for over an hour. It then had to dump its fuel when it was unable to get the landing gear out, and the pilot attempted to land without it.

Story developing, check back for updates.
