False Alarm Onboard Southwest Airlines Jet
was never any real danger, but the pilot of a Southwest Airlines
flight into Seattle-Tacoma International Airport didn't know that
when he radioed the tower Thursday morning, saying the plane might
be on fire.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports a faulty fire sensor in
the forward cargo section of the Boeing 737-300 caused the fire
warning to illuminate in the cockpit.
Southwest spokeswoman Brandy King told the P-I the light went
out after the pilot discharged the fire extinguishers in the cargo
The flight from Salt Lake City, with 126 passengers onboard,
then made an uneventful landing.
The aircraft was met by fire crews as a precaution, said airport
spokeswoman Rachel Garson, but the 737 taxied to the terminal under
its own power.
Passengers were offloaded through the jetway, as usual.
