CSW BREAKING: Aircraft Emergency Ends Safely at K.C.I. Airport

At  7:20 p.m.- five Kansas City MO Fire department structural companies and HazMat-71 joined KCI fire/rescue crews on an "Alert-2-" an incoming aircraft-in-trouble standby.

The plane- reportedly a "Southwest" Airlines flight- has "109" people on-board along with a "hazardous material" reported to be "battery acid."

The reason given for the standby was there were "fumes in the cockpit" of the plane.

 At 7:32 p.m. KCI fire/rescue reports the "aircraft has landed safely" and the airport crash/fire rigs and HazMat-71 were following the plane to the terminal for further checks.

Those checks revealed a "leak" of an unknown substance- possibly in the aircraft's cargo hold and HazMat remained on-scene as of 8:45 p.m..

One person was possibly treated for an unknonw injury.
