VIDEO: Flight Evacuates After Smoke Fills Cabin
Passengers on board a Delta Air Lines flight from Detroit to Denver last night were forced to evacuate after landing when smoke filled the cabin.
The plane was taxiing to the gate when the cabin suddenly filled with smoke. The plane stopped on the tarmac and the crew opened the emergency exits and passengers were evacuated down the emergency slides. There were no major injuries although some minor injuries were reported. Video taken by one of the passengers shows people standing on the plane's wings while others went down the slides.
Denver International Airport confirmed there was a fire on the plane. The cause is under investigation.
