A PASSENGER has captured the shocking moment his plane had to be evacuated after a fire was discovered on board.

The flight from Kansas City, Missouri to Denver, Colorado landed at 2.30pm on Tuesday, when a fire was detected within the plane.

The cabin crew took the decision to clear all passengers from the aircraft, shouting at them to "come this way!" and "leave all bags!".

Adrian Hartwell was one of the people evacuated from the jet and he decided to capture the dramatic moment on his phone camera.

Adrian later shared the footage he captured on Twitter, as the passengers were removed.
