A Horizon Air flight made an emergency landing at Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport late Tuesday morning because of a possible engine fire, authorities said.

Horizon flight No. 404 had departed from San Jose for Boise, Idaho, but returned after reporting a fire in the right engine or the activation of a fire indication light, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said.

The plane, a de Havilland DH8, landed at the San Jose airport without incident at 11:30 a.m., Gregor said.

He said there were 48 passengers and six crew members on board.

No injuries were reported, a fire dispatcher said.
