Passengers on a flight arriving in Seattle were in for a bit of a surprise before they left the Alaska Airlines aircraft.
A cell phone belonging to one of the travelers apparently caught fire out of nowhere, causing the entire cabin to grow smoky.
“The crew acted swiftly using fire extinguishers and a battery containment bag to control the fire and deployed the evacuation slides due to hazy conditions in the cabin,” said a spokesperson. “All guests exited the aircraft. Medics met the aircraft to attend to guests and crew.”
