    A Southwest Airlines jet made an emergency landing in Orlando after the report of a possible fire on the airplane.

    Airport officials at Orlando International Airport said there report of a fire in an auxiliary power unit on the plane which originated from St. Louis, though there didn't appear to be any flames, according to WESH.com

    The Boeing 737 landed safely with no injuries, and the 129 passengers were unloaded while the plane was on the runway as a precaution.

    The incident comes just hours after another Southwest flight heading from Nashville to Baltimore was forced to make an emergency landing after a hole was blown through the roof of the plane.

    No one was injured in that incident either.
