A passenger on an Allegiant Air flight traveling from Las Vegas to Fresno captured a video of the cabin filling with smoke on Sept. 25.

The plane was taxiing on the runway in Fresno when the plane came to an abrupt stop and smoke began filling the cabin. In the video, you can see passengers covering their faces with their shirts as the smoke filled the cabin.

Firefighters eventually boarded the flight and had the passengers exited the plane. No injuries have been reported.

Allegiant has blamed the incident on a mechanical problem.
