Delta Plane Quickly Evacuated Due to Smoke

A smoke smell entered the cabin of a Delta plane just after it landed at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Saturday morning, prompting the speedy exit of the 34 passengers on board.

"We expeditiously got them off the aircraft," Delta spokeswoman Betsy Talton tells the Star Tribune newspaper, which covers the Twin Cities.

Firefighters on the ground responded and discovered the smell came from the auxiliary power generator the plane used after landing, Talton says.

Airport spokesman Patrick Hogan tells the newspaper mechanics are working to repair the generator.

No injuries were reported.
