LATROBE, Pa. — Smoke in the cockpit of a plane brought emergency crews to Arnold Palmer Regional Airport on Monday morning, officials said.

The small private passenger plane with 12 people on board had just taken off from the airport in Latrobe when it had to turn around and land because of the smoke, officials said. The plane had been taking off for Shreveport, Louisiana.

Officials believe the smoke was caused by an issue with the heating system. Fire crews were called.
