(MIAMI) -- Three people were hospitalized Tuesday after a Red Air plane landed at Miami International Airport and caught on fire.

There were 126 people on the flight that landed from Santo Domingo at 5:30 p.m., the Miami Dade Aviation Department told ABC News.

The landing gear on the plane collapsed when it landed at the airport, the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement to ABC News. It is not clear if that caused the fire.

The fire is extinguished and the passengers will be bussed to the terminal, Greg Chin, Miami Dade Aviation Department communications director, said.

The three people were transported to area hospitals due to the incident, according to Chin.

The FAA is investigating.
