POSTED: Monday, September 17, 2012 --- 7:40 a.m.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Officials at an airport near Green Bay say a Delta flight made an emergency landing after smoke filled the airplane's cabin.

Austin Straubel International Airport director Tom Miller says the flight left Ashwaubenon shortly before 5 p.m. Sunday. Miller says the plane's cabin filled with smoke while the flight was headed to Detroit, Mich. The plane returned to Austin Straubel where it made an emergency landing about a half-hour later.

Sixty-five passengers and a crew of four evacuated the plane on the taxiway using a set of stairs. They were taken to the terminal where a medical crew checked everyone. No one was transported to the hospital.

Officials haven't said what caused the smoke.
