A United Airlines jet headed to California made an emergency landing in West Virginia after pilots reported smoke in the aircraft.
The Boeing 757 landed at Charleston's Yeager Airport about 9 a.m. Tuesday. No injuries were reported among the 178 passengers.

An airport spokesman says United is sending a replacement aircraft to Charleston this afternoon to pick up the stranded passengers and crew.
