An airplane reportedly suffered engine problems after taking off from the Denver airport, with metal debris raining down on a residential neighborhood.
"People in the northwest Denver metro area reported large chunks of metal falling from the sky Saturday afternoon. The Broomfield Police Department says it received reports of a plane with "engine trouble" around 1:08 p.m," Fox 31 Denver reports. "Debris landed in several neighborhoods, including near Sheridan Boulevard and West 136th Avenue, according to North Metro Fire Rescue."
