DENVER -- The plane carrying the wife of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney made an emergency landing in Denver Friday afternoon after the cabin filled with smoke.

Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul said Ann Romney's plane made an unexpected landing on Friday afternoon in Colorado after it filled with smoke. Saul says no one was injured in the incident.

Campaign sources say an electrical fire in the cabin prompted the landing. The FAA tells NBC News the plane Mrs. Romney's was on is a Canadair Regional Jet. Our Denver sister station KUSA says the flight was en route to Santa Monica, Calif., when it was diverted to Denver.

Mitt Romney was in Nevada, appearing at a fundraiser and rally on Friday. He was heading to California this weekend to raise money.
