The pilots of Airbus A320-232, performing flight JBU-262, reported a brake trouble and landed heavily on RWY 16R at Sacramento International Airport (KSMF), CA, and blew four tires. A small fire then broke out on the right mainwheel section and the crew (5 members) deployed the emergency slides to evacuate the 86 (or 87?) passengers of the plane. The fire was quickly extinguished. Fifteen passengers are reported to be injured, with five of them being admitted to hospital.

The first officer’s inadvertent activation of the parking brake in flight led to the airplane abruptly stopping and all four of its main landing gear tires deflating after a a nonstandard procedure to cancel the airplane's monitoring alert system.
