Incident occurred September 25, 2017 at Fresno Yosemite International Airport (KFAT), Fresno County, California

FRESNO, Calif. (FOX26 NEWS)-- An Allegiant Airlines MD-80 flight declared an emergency Monday after landing.

It happened at the Fresno Yosemite International Airport.

The pilot reported a loss of hydraulics and smoke in the cockpit.

The plane was returning from Las Vegas to Fresno and had to stop before making it back to the terminal.

Passengers evacuated out of the back end of the plane onto the tarmac.

Passengers reported they could see light smoke in the cabin.

No one was injured.

Allegiant Airlines statement to Fox 26 News:

Allegiant flight 514 with service from McCarran International Airport (LAS) to Fresno Yosemite International Airport (FAT) landed normally in Fresno at 11:57 AM local time. While taxiing to the gate, a mechanical issue arose that caused a visible haze to appear toward the front of the aircraft. Out of an abundance of caution, the crew decided to stop short of the gate and passengers deplaned with any carry-on items via the rear stairs. Passengers proceeded to the terminal to pick up their baggage per normal procedures.

There were 150 passengers on board and six crew members.
