Updated 8:20 a.m. ET

Two Delta Air Lines flights made emergency landings Monday - one for a small fire and the other due to a suspected blaze. It was "a busy evening" for the airline, said a spokesperson.

Delta Flight 1841, en route to Atlanta from Syracuse, N.Y. returned to Syracuse Hancock International Airport Monday evening after smoke was reported in the cabin, Security Officer Joe Brainerd tells CBS News.

He says it was a small electrical fire, apparently associated with a coffee pot, and was quickly extinguished.

Delta Airlines Spokeswoman Sarah Lora says there was a "smoky odor on the galley."

The MD80 made a safe landing at about 6:25 p.m. ET. No one among the 121 passengers was reported hurt..

A second Delta jetliner made an emergency landing Monday night at Tri-Cities Airport in Pasco, Wash.

The plane was headed from Atlanta to Seattle, according to Pasco Fire Department Battalion Chief Thomas Tviet.

He tells CBS News the plane had at least 185 people on board and all are safe.

Delta spokesperson Lora says there was indication of a "haze" in the belly of the plane and out of concern, the flight diverted and landed safely.

Tveit says an alarm went off in the cockpit indicating a possible fire in the cargo bay, but after an inspection, there was no evidence of a fire.

Lora said passengers were given vouchers and were due to fly on a replacement plane sometime Tuesday morning.
