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.

A United spokeswoman says Flight 229 was flying from Dulles International Airport in Virginia to San Diego. It was diverted to Charleston when the pilots smelled something burning.

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