FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Federal aviation officials say a
Phoenix-bound Allegiant Airlines flight made an emergency landing
in Flagstaff after an indicator light showed a possible fire in one
of its two engines.
The flight was flying from Billings, Mont., on Sunday morning
when the indicator light showed a possible fire in the plane's No.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says it's
not clear whether there was an actual fire.
The plane was diverted to Flagstaff and landed safely at about
10:30 a.m. Passengers exited the aircraft using emergency slides.
Flagstaff police say three people suffered minor injuries while
exiting the plane and were transported to a local hospital.
