    A Baltimore-bound JetBlue flight out of Boston was diverted to Philadelphia on Sunday evening after smoke was reported in the cabin.

    Jet Blue flight 827 was headed to Baltimore-Washington International Airport Sunday night from Boston when reports of smoke in the cabin forced it make an emergency landing in Philadelphia.

    The airline says Flight 827 landed just before 6 p.m. Sunday, and 95 passengers and four crewmembers were safely evacuated. No injuries were reported.

    The airline eventually put the passengers on a different plane, but it took a while.

    That flight was supposed to land at BWI around 7 p.m. Passengers finally arrived around 1 a.m.

    A JetBlue statement says the captain elected to divert the flight out of "an abundance of caution."
