A Delta Airlines plane made an emergency landing at Montgomery Regional Airport on Sunday after smoke started filling the cockpit.

Local broadcaster WSFA reported that the flight has 190 passengers on board.

The first indication of the situation came out at 4:37 p.m. EDT.

Another broadcaster, WBRC, reported that there is no injuries. 

The flight has been identified as flight #534, which was en route to Atlanta, Georgia from Cancun, Mexico. 

The flight was scheduled to arrive at 4:13 p.m. but is now estimated to arrive at 8:31 p.m.

Delta is saying the cause of the emergency landing is a fluorescent bulb that went out, causing a smoky odor.
