DENVER – A Delta Airlines flight from Detroit to Denver was evacuated after landing Tuesday evening at Denver International Airport following reports of smoke in the cabin.

Delta Airlines Flight 1854 from Detroit had already been delayed in Detroit before the flight departed, according to flight records and a passenger who was on the plane.

But all its passengers had to be evacuated once the plane landed in Denver around 8 p.m., DIA confirms to Denver7. The airport said that smoke had filled the cabin, though it was unclear whether that happened while the plane was in the air or after the plane landed.

Firefighters responded to the scene. No injuries were reported from smoke inhalation, DIA said, but it was unclear if anyone was injured while getting off the plane.

This is a developing news story; Denver7 is working to learn more and will update this story with the latest information.
