"It is a miracle anyone has survived…" was the stunned reaction from one witness as a Russian passenger plane has made an emergency landing at a Moscow airport after a fire broke out on board.

Interfax agency reported that the plane, a Russian-made Superjet-100, had just taken off from Sheremetyevo airport on a domestic route when the crew issued a distress signal.

"It attempted an emergency landing but did not succeed the first time, and on the second time the landing gear hit (the ground), then the nose did, and it caught fire," a source told Interfax.

It reported that the tail was completely burned and said a rescue team was trying to find survivors in that part of the plane. 

There were 73 passengers and 6 crew aboard.

TASS news agency, citing a source, said at least thirteen people were killed.

Other news agencies reported various figures on the number of injured – from five to more than 10.
