A flight from Phoenix headed to Dallas made an emergency landing at the Albuquerque International Sunport Sunday night. Around 8:30 p.m., firefighters were called after a Southwest Airlines flight 3562 was diverted after the cabin filled with smoke. Airport officials said the smoke was due to an electrical fire. Passengers were deplaned, put on transport buses and taken to the terminal. Those on board said it was a scary experience and there were some minor injuries. But they said the crew on board did a great job. Right now it is unclear what caused the electrical fire.
