Smoke spurs 737 to make emergency landing

LINTHICUM, Md. — Officials say a Southwest flight from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to Philadelphia landed safely at Baltimore’s airport after flight attendants saw smoke in the cabin.

A spokesman for Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport said the Boeing 737 landed safely at about 10 p.m. today. Spokesman Jonathan Dean said airport fire and rescue crews met the plane as a precaution.

Southwest spokesman Paul Flanigan said Flight 3858 was carrying 125 passengers. He said flight attendants reported smoke in the rear cabin.

Flanigan said the plane was taken out of service so mechanics could inspect it, and passengers were being flown to Philadelphia on another aircraft. No one was hurt.
