HONOLULU (AP) — A United Airlines flight from Honolulu to San Francisco was abruptly canceled after passengers reported seeing smoke from an engine.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that Flight 724 had just started going down the runway Friday afternoon in Honolulu when passengers reported hearing a loud bang and seeing the smoke.

The aircraft returned to the terminal and all 325 passengers exited the plane. No injuries were reported.

United Airlines staff helped passengers make alternate arrangements to get to San Francisco.
