File this under extremely bizarre! Video captured some carry-on luggage on fire in an overhead bin on a China Southern CZ3539 airplane just after passengers began boarding. A power bank inside had burst into flames, spreading to the entire suitcase, according to Channel NewsAsia. Passengers and staff attempted to extinguish it with juice and water as firefighters arrived and then ended up boarding a replacement aircraft.
