WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - An American Eagle regional jet carrying 55 people makes an emergency landing in Kansas after a smoke alarm for the jet’s baggage compartment is activated.

The Wichita Eagle (bit.ly/1UObxiV) reports the Embraer ERJ 145 landed safely at Wichita Eisenhower National Airport around 7 a.m. Monday. Airport officials say no indications of smoke or fire were found.

A Wichita Airport Authority spokeswoman says the jet was flying from Grand Island, Nebraska, to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport when the alarm sounded.
