SEATAC, Wash. – The Federal Aviation Administration says a Southwest Airlines flight from Salt Lake City landed safely at Sea-Tac Airport after a light indicated a fire in a storage area.
The pilot discharged a fire extinguisher and firefighters met the plane.
A Southwest spokeswoman, Brandy King, says there was no fire. She says the problem was a malfunction with the sensor in the cargo area.
FAA spokesman Allen Kenitzer says the pilot believed there was a fire in the forward storage area and discharged the halon fire extinguisher. He says once it was discharged, the light went out.
The plane landed without incident at Sea-Tac, its destination.
