COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (KBTX)- An airplane made an emergency landing in College Station on Thursday after smoke was reported onboard the aircraft, reports CBS affiliate KBTX.
According to online flight records, United Airlines Flight 6266 departed Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston at 6:04 p.m. and landed at Easterwood Airport at 6:43 p.m.
The plane was en route to Boise, Idaho before it was diverted due to a report of smoke in the fuselage of the aircraft.
Mesa Airlines sent a statement to KHOU 11 News Thursday evening confirming they were operating the United Express Flight 6266. The flight diverted to College Station due to a mechanical issue, the airlines said.
"We have our two young children with us, so we're just glad to be safe and on the ground," said passenger Troy Schrenk. He said he never saw smoke in the cabin, but it did "feel considerably warmer" than normal.
Firefighters responding to the incident were unable to find the source of the smoke, according to College Station Fire Battalion Chief Greg Rodgers.
Smoke detectors on the aircraft were activated around the same time flight attendants saw smoke, about 7 minutes after take-off from IAH, according to the College Station Fire Department.
Firefighters said nothing was found by crews in cabin or cargo areas.
No injuries were reported and officials said the plane was at full capacity.
All passengers safely unloaded and their baggage was retrieved. A new plane is scheduled to arrive at 9:10 p.m. and will depart for Boise at 9:40 p.m.
