(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Passengers aboard an Aeromexico flight got quite a scare after take-off from Salt Lake City International Airport.

It happened Sunday. Some passengers on the flight headed for Mexico City told a local tv station they heard a loud sound and saw flames coming out of one of the engines right after take-off.

The plane turned around and landed safely. Airline officials put the passengers up for the night and will fly them out today.

Aeromexico officials say they're not sure what caused the problem, but they're investigating. No one was hurt.
