Have mercy!

Ashley Olsen is thankfully safe and sound after an airplane taking off from Dallas to El Lay was grounded after a terrifying engine fire!

American Airlines flight 2421 was leaving DFW when the cockpit began filling with smoke, forcing the plane's pilots to swiftly move back to the terminal just before take off.

We hear that about 200 passengers, along with Ashley, were escorted off the plane safely.

No word on whether or not Mary-Kate was with her sister! If not, we bet her twin spidey senses were tingling in full force!

Thank goodness Ash, the pilots, and passengers are safe and on the ground!

UPDATE: So according to American Airlines the fire part of this story was a bit exaggerated.

How exaggerated?

There was NO fire!!!

Here's what an American Airlines spokesperson said:

“[The plane] returned to the gate prior to departure because of an electrical odor in the cockpit. There was no
engine fire. We swapped planes and the flight departed DFW at 1:24 p.m.”

However, the spokesperson did say that Ashley may have been somewhere in the vicinity, so that part may have been true.

Fire or no fire - we're just super glad everyone on board (including Ashley) is A-OK!!!
