MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A Spirit Airlines flight that took off from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport made an emergency landing after a pilot reported a possible engine fire.

The flight took off about 7:30 p.m. Sunday and was headed for Orlando, but within minutes returned to the Twin Cities airport.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a statement that said the Airbus A320 landed safely about 7:50 p.m. and taxied to the terminal.

No injuries were reported. The FAA plans to investigate.

Airport officials say fire crews responded, but did not find a fire.

Spirit Airlines says another airplane transported passengers to Orlando.
