Plane's brakes catch on fire at Logan

Kevin Davis reports he was on Delta flight 2101 around 4:30 p.m., getting ready to taxi to the runway en route to Atlanta, when the plane stopped:

Sitting in a plane on the tarmac at BOS surrounded by fire trucks. I don't think this one is taking off anytime soon. ...

Turns out plane was on fire. Fire is out, deplaning now onto runway at BOS. Fun.

More specifically, the brakes started smoking.

Davis, a photographer by trade, took some photos: The plane | An evacuation bus | The view out the bus | A runway view of downtown

He asks:

Anyone know how many frequent flier miles you get when your airplane catches fire?
