PHOENIX (AP) -

US Airways says 1 of its planes on a flight from Las Vegas to Charlotte, N.C., was diverted Monday morning to Phoenix after the crew reported fumes in the cabin.

Airline spokesman Bill McGlashen says mechanics are checking the plane and that there's no indication what caused the reported fumes.

US Airways Flight 910 had nine passengers and three crew members on board. The passengers and crew reported smelling an odor in the cabin of the plain.

McGlashen says paramedics tended to six crew members and one passenger after the Airbus A321 landed at Sky Harbor International Airport.

Fire Capt. Ton Mure says one passenger was transported to a hospital. He says he has no information about that person's medical condition.

All passengers were put on other flights back to Charlotte.
