American Eagle CRJ7 at Peoria on Jul 18th 2012, smoke in cabin
Last Update: April 12, 2013 / 08:59:59 GMT/Zulu time
On Feb 12th 2013 the NTSB released their brief factual report stating that the aircraft was on a 3nm final to Peoria's runway when smoke was detected in the aircraft. After landing the crew commanded an evacuation, the main door and both overwing exits were used for the evacuation. One passengers received a fractured ankle as result of the evacuation. A post landing examination did not identify any obvious source of the smoke. The aircraft had been dispatched under minimum equipment list requirements with one air conditioning system inoperative, the remaining air conditioning system failed on final approach to Peoria, so that the cabin was supplied with ambient air. On final approach the aircraft overflew a large house fire.
On Apr 12th 2013 the NTSB released their final report concluding the probable cause of the accident was:
The emergency ground egress during which a passenger broke her ankle. Contributing to the accident was the failure of the environmental system, which allowed smoke from a nearby house fire to enter the airplane.
