A small plane landed safely at the Chico Municipal Airport Friday morning after reporting engine failure just moments before it landed, Chico fire officials said.

Crews received an alert about the plane around 10 a.m., and responded to the airport, where the plane, with the cockpit filled with smoke, touched down safely a few minutes later.

The smoke and engine troubles were the result of low oil pressure.

No injuries were reported.
