    The footage shows a small fire on board a New York-Houston flight that could have swiftly spread to other luggage and posed a very real danger to the passengers.

    A passenger on board the Delta Airlines plane filmed a chilling video showing a fire breaking out in the carry-on compartment. According to him, a vape pen suddenly exploded, starting a minor fire that was soon put out by a flight attendant with a fire extinguisher.

    There are no details about what exactly triggered the explosion of the device.
