A passenger plane with at least 150 people aboard crashed and burst into flames Tuesday after landing at Sao Paulo's airport for domestic flights, Brazil's airport authority said.
There were no immediate reports of injuries or deaths by authorities, but flames shot into the sky and clouds of black smoke billowed into the air after the Airbus-320 skidded off the runway.
The plane then traveled across a busy road at the height of rush hour in South America's largest city and slammed into a gas station, said Jose Leonardi Mota, a spokesman with airport authority Infraero.
Brazilian media reported the plane crashed into a building or warehouse owned by Tam, and television images showed images of firefighters spraying water onto the building bearing a Tam sign.
