Plane diverted to Chicago airport

CHICAGO

A Chicago Department of Aviation spokesman says British Airways flight 195 was headed to Houston from London when, reportedly, a small fire broke out on board.

The Boeing 777 landed safely, and passengers deplaned on the tarmac. The fire also triggered a hazardous materials response.

No one was hurt in the incident. As of Sunday evening, there had been no word on when or how passengers would get to their final destination.
