FORT PIERCE, Fla. -- A small plane landed on its belly at the Treasure Coast International Airport Monday morning.

St. Lucie County Fire District received a call at approximately 10:15 a.m. about a plane that was having difficulty deploying its landing gear.

As a precaution, crews sprayed the area around the plane due to a fuel leak.
