LAS VEGAS (AP) - Officials say a Boeing 737 bound for Miami with 118 people aboard returned to Las Vegas after the pilot reported seeing a cockpit warning light.

American Airlines spokesman Andrew Christie said Wednesday an in-flight emergency was declared as a precaution, and it was resolved safely when the aircraft landed at McCarran International Airport about 12:50 p.m.

Christie says flight 1476 departed McCarran about 11:15 a.m. for Miami with 112 passengers and six crew members aboard.

He says he doesn’t know what the warning indicated.

Airport spokeswoman Christine Crews says it was an unspecified flight controller.

Crews says Clark County firefighters inspected the plane after it landed and declared it safe.

Christie says the aircraft was taken out of service and passengers were re-booked on other flights to their destinations.
