Charlotte-bound US Airways flight diverted to SC

Officials say a US Airways flight from Dallas to Charlotte, N.C., made an emergency landing in South Carolina after someone smelled smoke on board.

Airport spokeswoman Rosylin Weston says the plane landed at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport just after 1 p.m. on Monday.

Weston says emergency responders met the plane on the tarmac. No one was injured, and Weston says the roughly 100 passengers were taken by bus to Charlotte.

Officials do not know what caused the smoke smell, and the matter is still under investigation.
