CSW BREAKING: Aircraft "Evacuated" of Passengers at K.C.I. Airport


K
C-MO Fire companies are re-responding on what was initially reported as "smoke in the cockpit" of a passenger jet at Kansas City International airport.



The initial fire alarm sounded at 3:15 p.m.- and airport fire crews were thought to have the situation under control and had cancelled the response of outside structural fire companies.

However- at 3:28 p.m.- the captain of the plane ordered an evacuation of the passengers- and at this report people are leaving the plane via wing and other exits.

Three FD-EMS units have also been ordered for apparently injured passengers.\

At 3:35 p.m. airport fire crews are reporting NO smoke or fire inside the aircraft.


UPDATE - 1538 CDT : KCI airport fire command reports that NO passengers have been injured and that they found "no fire" and "no smoke" aboard the Midwest Airlines jet that contained 104 passengers and crew.
