 A six-passenger private plane made an emergency landing at the Jamestown Regional Airport due to an engine problem Friday.

Airport Manager Samuel Seafeldt (SEE'-fehlt) tells KQDJ radio that the flight was on its way to Fargo when the pilot requested clearance for an emergency landing. The pilot reported that the engine gave out a puff of smoke indicating a problem.

Seafeldt says some of the plane's instruments malfunctioned, leading the pilot to believe that a fire had started.

Fire Chief Jim Reuther says crews did not see any flames or smoke when the airplane landed. Crews remained at the site to make sure that a fire wouldn't break out.

The plane with two occupants continued its trip after it was cleared to depart.
