UPDATE: Delta flight lands in Seattle after diversion

UPDATE: 7:50 a.m. | PASCO, Wash. (AP) — A Seattle-bound Delta Air Lines flight from Atlanta that made an emergency landing Monday night to Pasco finally landed about 6 a.m. Tuesday at Sea-Tac Airport.

KOMO reports the Boeing 757 had landed at the Tri-Cities airport after a sensor indicated a fire in the cargo hold, which turned out to be a false alarm.

KNDU-TV reports some passengers were to be bused to Seattle while others waited for the plane to be cleared to continue the flight.

A Delta spokesman did not immediately return a call for confirmation and details.

A Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman at a Seattle-area operations center said she could not confirm the landing and directed inquiries to an FAA spokesman who did not immediately return an email.
