DFW public safety officers remove smoking bag from cargo hold of American Eagle plane

The Dallas/Fort Worth Airport said its safety personnel removed a smoking bag from the cargo hold of an American Eagle aircraft at Terminal B on Tuesday afternoon.

Airport spokesman David Magana said the incident resulted in the temporary closure of four gates at Terminal B this afternoon.

"Firefighters responding to the aircraft reported a smoking bag inside the cargo hold, prompting a further investigation," Magana said.

American Eagle flight 3302 arrived at DFW from Moline, Illinois with a report of smoke in the cargo hold. The Embraer E-145 had landed safely with 44 passengers and four crew members and all deplaned safely, he added.

The bag was removed at 3:15 p.m. for further investigation and all of the gates have since reopened.
