Lufthansa down in YYZ

Wondering if anyone has any additional info on the Lufthansa jet that just skidded off of the runway in Toronto and burst into flames? The new report says that it was supposedly a 737 with 200 pax on board. I'm watching this on CNN right now and visibility isn't that great. Has anyone heard anything else?
 
They said it's an A340 from Air France. It's supposedly on fire. Let's hope everyone got out.
 
CNN Is saying its a 737 with 200 passengers which is wrong. Its an A330. Lufthansa.

Skidded of runway into a ravine. TUNE TO CNN Now! Live video and you can see this big fire from the aircraft.

I hope the pax/crew got out before the news crews got there..... From the pictures, it doesn't look like much is left of the fuse, but it was a pretty bad feed.... Press conference at 1700 EST.......

AP: AIR FRANCE A340 Jetliner from France to Toronto..

On its approach just before landing it hit major turbulence and may have hit the runway and skid off into a ravine.
