To-Denver Delta flight fills with smoke upon landing

Flight 1854, an MD-90 twin-engine airliner flying from Detroit to Denver International Airport, was carrying 146 passengers, a Delta spokesman said.

The plane's 153 passengers used the jet's emergency slides. Passengers said the landing was fine, and then there was smoke in the cabin.

Delta Airlines also provided a statement about the incident Tuesday night. A small number of passengers were treated and released, the airline said.

A Delta representative told Business Insider that the smoke resulted from hydraulic fluid dripping on the auxiliary power unit.

There were a "handful" of minor injuries, including smoke inhalation and sprains, Black said.

One passenger tweeted that "fumes came through the vents".

It remains unclear what caused the smoke.

"After a couple of minutes, the flight attendant was like, 'Everyone get low to the ground and cover your mouth with a blanket, or clothes, or whatever you have.' And maybe a minute later, they finally made the call to evacuate the plane".

Other photos show a passenger going down an inflatable slide and dozens standing in the grass looking at the plane, some holding their carry-on bags. "As it was taxiing, smoke was reported in the cabin so the aircraft was safely evacuated".
