(CBS News) -- Two Delta Air Lines flights made emergency landings Monday - one for a small fire and the other due to a suspected blaze.

Delta Flight 1841, en route to Atlanta from Syracuse, N.Y. returned to Syracuse Hancock International Airport Monday evening after smoke was reported in the cabin, Security Officer Joe Brainerd tells CBS News.

He says it was a small electrical fire, apparently associated with a coffee pot, and was quickly extinguished.

Brainerd says the MD80 made a safe landing at about 6:25 p.m. ET. No one was reported hurt. The number of people on board wasn't known.

A second Delta jetliner made an emergency landing Monday night at Tri-Cities Airport in Pasco, Wash.

The plane was headed from Atlanta to Seattle, according to Pasco Fire Department Battalion Chief Thomas Tviet.

He tells CBS News the plane had at least 185 people on board and all are safe.

Tveit says an alarm went off in the cockpit indicating a possible fire in the cargo bay, but after an inspection, there was no evidence of a fire.

Tveit says Delta was bringing in another plane to get the passengers to Seattle.
