A Boeing 747 aircraft carrying military personnel was forced to make an emergency landing at O’Hare Airport Monday afternoon.
In the air for 58 minutes after departing from Topeka, Kansas, the plane touched down in Chicago at 3:49 p.m. after crew members were alerted to a scare in the cargo compartment.
Originally heading for Poznan, Poland, officials with the Chicago Fire Department said the plane’s sensor notified its crew of a possible fire.
Emergency responders were waiting for the plane’s arrival at O’Hare and inspected it as soon as it landed safely.
The military members on-board were evacuated and officials say no fire was found.
