A Delta Airlines Airbus A319-100, registration N358NB performing flight DL-950 from Detroit,MI to New York La Guardia,NY (USA) with 132 people on board, was maintaining 10,000 feet on departure out of Detroit, when the crew read the clearance to climb to 13,000 feet back but added "standby". The crew subsequently reported they had a left hand engine (CFM56) fire indication. The crew stopped the climb at 12,000 feet, shut the engine down, advised there was no fire and returned to Detroit for a safe landing on runway 22L about 17 minutes after departure. The aircraft vacated the runway and requested emergency services to check the left engine.

A replacement A319-100 registration N352NB reached New York with a delay of 3 hours.
