US Airways Express plane is evacuated in Phoenix

ASSOCIATED PRESS

PHOENIX — Passengers aboard a US Airways Express plane had to be evacuated at a Phoenix airport after a report of smoke in a bathroom.

Federal Aviation Administration officials say SkyWest flight 2948 arrived from Albuquerque about 3:30 p.m. today at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

Authorities say the passengers were evacuated as a precaution and they were taken by bus from the tarmac to a terminal to catch connecting flights.

There were no reported injuries and authorities say the cause of the smoke aboard the plane isn’t immediately known.

Phoenix firefighters boarded the plane before it was towed to a gate.
