Fumes Force LA-Reno Flight To Land In Fresno
FRESNO (AP) — Officials say a commuter aircraft flying from Los Angeles to Reno, Nev., made an emergency Friday landing in Fresno after complaints of fumes in the cabin.
Fresno-Yosemite International Airport officials say American Eagle Flight 3024 landed safely at 1:40 p.m. after a pilot and passengers smelled fumes.
The Federal Aviation Administration says there were no reports of injuries among the 42 passengers or three crewmembers on board the 44-seat commuter jet.
FAA spokesman Ian Gregor says the agency will work with the airline to determine the source of the fumes.
Earlier Friday, an American Airlines flight bound for San Francisco made an emergency landing in Las Vegas after the crew smelled smoke in the cockpit.
