FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Federal aviation officials say an Allegiant Airlines flight has made an emergency landing in Flagstaff, Ariz., after an indicator light showed a possible fire in one of its two engines.
The flight was en route to Phoenix from Billings, Mont., on Sunday morning when the indicator light showed a possible fire in the plane's No. 2 engine. Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says it's not clear whether there was an actual fire.
The plane was diverted to Flagstaff and landed safety at about 10:30 a.m. Passengers exited the aircraft using emergency slides.
Flagstaff police say three people suffered minor injuries while exiting the plane and were transported to a local hospital.
The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.
