COLUMBUS, Ohio (WJZ) — A Southwest Airlines flight from BWI made an emergency landing at Port Columbus International Airport late Tuesday night.

Linh Bui has the details.

A spokesperson from Southwest Airlines says Flight 424 from Baltimore/Washington to Chicago-Midway diverted to Columbus after the pilots received a smoke indication in the forward cargo hold.

The captain declared an emergency and landed safely.

Emergency evacuation slides were deployed and all 49 passengers and five crew members on board escaped safely. No injuries were reported.

Emergency vehicles surrounded the plane on the taxiway and found no indication of smoke or a fire.

Southwest Airlines says the aircraft is out of service for further inspections and they are working to get passengers to Chicago first thing Wednesday morning.
