CANANDAIGUA — A plane headed for Rochester made an emergency landing Sunday at the Canandaigua Airport after smoke was seen.

Ontario County sheriff’s deputies responded to the airport on Brickyard Road about 2 p.m., along with Canandaigua, East Bloomfield and Victor firefighters. Canandaigua Ambulance also responded.

Deputies said 42 people — including the crew — were on the plane, a twin turboprop operated by Commutair as a United Express Airway flight. The plane was headed from Newark, N.J. to Rochester when smoke was seen in the cockpit, restroom and cabin.

While the restroom smoke detector went off, no flames were seen. A flight attendant used two fire extinguishers before the plane landed safely, and there were no injuries.

Deputies said there was nothing suspicious about the fire, which appears to be electrical in nature. The Federal Aviation Administration was called in to investigate.
