(Fargo, ND) -- The FAA is investigating why an Allegiant Airlines plane had to make an emergency landing at Hector Airport in North Fargo Monday night.

Emergency crews responded to the airport runway just after 10 p.m, including up to eight Fargo fire trucks. They spent more than an hour on the call, but it's unclear if anyone was injured.

Reports have indicated that  the plane was circling above Fargo for a while before making a safe landing, but that has not yet been confirmed.

WDAY Radio has reached out to Hector Airport officials, as well as Allegiant for more comment on the situation.
