EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — An Alaska Airlines spokeswoman says a smoking galley oven prompted the crew of a Boeing 737 bound from Orange County, Calif., to Seattle to make an unscheduled landing Thursday afternoon in Eugene, Ore.

The Register-Guard reports that airline spokeswoman Bobbie Egan says no fire was involved. She says crew members turned off the oven's power source and used an extinguisher as a precaution after the oven overheated.

Egan says the 122 passengers on Flight 513 exited normally through the left front door at the Eugene Airport.

She says the aircraft was taken out of service and fully inspected by maintenance technicians. A replacement plane was substituted.
