KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. —

An Alaska Airlines flight from Las Vegas to Portland made an emergency landing at Klamath Falls Airport after the crew noticed a hot electrical smell in the cabin.

Alaska Airlines spokeswoman Bobbie Egan says the pilot of the Boeing 737-800 declared an emergency and landed safely before noon Thursday and the 136 passengers were put on a replacement plane flown in from Seattle and were on their way in about five hours.

Passenger Brian Lien of Vancouver, Wash., told the Herald and News newspaper he saw flight attendants investigating the smell in the back of the plane's passenger cabin.

Egan says maintenance crews inspected the plane and found no problems. It was flown back to Portland.
