A passenger jet was forced into an emergency landing at Toronto's Pearson International Airport Friday morning after a questionable smell was reported.

American Eagle Airlines flight 4349 landed at Pearson at around 9:15 a.m. Initial reports indicated there was smoke in the cabin, but a spokesman from the airline said later that was inaccurate.

The emergency landing was prompted by a flight attendant who reported an "electrical odour," according to Ed Martelle.

"And, as it turns out, the odor came from an overheated cabin light unit," he said in an email.

The airplane was carrying 49 passengers, two pilots and one flight attendant. It was travelling to Chicago from Montreal.

The airline said there are no injuries, and maintenance crews at Pearson are now looking into the origin of the smell.

All passengers were booked on other flights.
