An apparent electrical fire is being blamed after a plane carrying Ann Romney was forced to make an emergency landing Friday afternoon in Denver.

No injuries were reported after smoke filled the cabin on the flight from Omaha, Neb., to Los Angeles. Campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul says Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his wife spoke immediately after the incident.

A spokesman traveling with Mitt Romney says Mrs. Romney told her husband everything was fine.

Airport spokeswoman Laura Coale said the plane, a Challenger 600, was routed to Denver around 2:20 p.m. local time with smoke in the cabin. The plane was greeted by Denver fire and police officials.
