737-800, UR-SQH (30292/1451) of SkyUp Airlines suffered a fire on the LH MLG after taxying in from landing at SSH on 9 Nov 2019.

A video of the incident shows ramp workers fetching fire-extinguishers from ground-support vehicles which were standing by to receive the aircraft. They appeared to tackle the blaze within 1 minute of its starting.

The passengers remained on board throughout the incident and there was no evacuation.
