A plane has reportedly crash-landed at Dubai International Airport.

Emirates has confirmed a flight was "involved in an accident" at the airport at around 12:45pm on Wednesday (local time).

It's thought a fire ignited on board the plane, which was travelling from India to Dubai when it was forced to make an emergency landing.

Witnesses at the scene have filmed heavy smoke pouring from the plane on the runway.

All 275 passengers and crew have been safely evacuated and no injuries have been reported, according to Dubai Airport.

"Our main priority now is the safety and well-being of all involved," Emirates says.

Authorities and emergency services are currently at the scene and departing flights have been delayed.
