PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - A US Airways plane bound for Las Vegas from Philadelphia was forced to return after just 15 minutes in the air because of warning lights in the cockpit.

It happened at about 9 p.m. Wednesday night with 134 passengers aboard. The emergency lights warned pilots of a possible malfunction and potential smoke problem.

Nothing was found and the plane landed safely. The passengers were transferred to other flights.
