Cargo hold fire forces emergency landing of JetBlue plane

 Friday, September 13, 2019 


According to a report, on Wednesday morning a flight from the Dominican Republic to Orlando had to make an emergency landing in the Bahamas after the on-board crew reported smoke in the cargo hold.


The flight touched down in Nassau soon after it took off when the crew reported the smoke.


Passengers at first evacuated the plane normally, but the captain then made the decision to spring the emergency slides and have the remaining crew members and passengers exit down them.


No injuries were reported during the evacuation, according to the report.


“Initial inspections of the aircraft found no signs of any issues,” JetBlue told reporters in an email. “The aircraft will be further inspected and customers are continuing on to Orlando aboard a new aircraft.”
