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.
2 engine.

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.

The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are
investigating.
