Turkish plane fills with smoke
Sep 3, 2012 / 11:00 am
Authorities at the Cologne-Bonn airport say 11 people have been injured after smoke filled the cabin of a Turkish airliner.
Airport fire department spokesman Jens Mueller said Monday the plane was evacuated midday at the airport.
Seven people were treated on the scene for minor smoke inhalation and four others were taken to the hospital with slightly more severe injuries. He says it is not yet known what caused the smoke.
There were about 200 people on the plane.
Airport police say some of the passengers on board the Oger Turk flight reported smelling kerosene.
Mueller says the plane had landed as scheduled in Cologne-Bonn en route to a final destination elsewhere, but that he didn't have further details of where the plane started its journey or was bound.
