LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Six people were recently treated after fumes on a Spirit Airlines flight made them feel ill.

It happened on Tuesday night. The flight was arriving at McCarran International Airport from Seattle, Washington.

The people treated included flight attendants.

This isn't the first time that fumes have been an issue on a Spirit flight.

In May 2019, 15 people became ill on a flight before takeoff from McCarran.

Fumes on Spirit and Allegiant were also investigated by 13 Action News last year.
