LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A flight that originated from LAX was evacuated in Oakland Wednesday night after the plane’s cabin filled with smoke.

Delta flight 4454 arrived at Oakland International Airport shortly after 9 p.m., officials said.

“By the time we got to the gate, the cabin started filling up. It smelled like burned rubber and the pilots just immediately put the plane to a stop . . .  and the flight attendants were telling everyone ‘Get off the plane!'” passenger Linton Johnson said.

Passengers were told to leave their belongings.

All travelers and crew were able to depart without any injuries.

No fire was found on the plane and it was unclear where the smoke originated from.
