A small fire in the cabin forced the pilot of a commercial plane to return to O'Hare Airport on Thursday night.

The American flight headed to St. Louis had just taken off when a camcorder battery shorted out in an overhead bin.

There was some light smoke in the cabin but no one was harmed.

The plane returned to the gate and passengers boarded another aircraft.
