Passengers were told to crouch forward with their heads against the seat in front of them, said Chauvin, who is from Beloeil, Que., just east of Montreal.

"People started to get scared, we didn't know what was happening, we were scared", she said in a phone interview.

The plane landed on Runway 4 and remained there while airport firefighters responded - and all 189 passengers were evacuated via emergency slides, officials said.

All runways were temporarily closed at Newark Liberty Airport on Saturday for about 30 minutes as the airport dealt with a possible fire in the cargo of an airplane.

No fire was found and the cause of the smoke remains under investigation, he said. Passengers "were evacuated on the runway via the chutes and bused to the terminal, where they will be housed until the airline can determine what it wants to do with them". Two passengers were treated on the scene for minor injuries.

Port Authority spokesman Steve Coleman told New Jersey 101.5 that an Air Transat flight from Canada to Florida radioed the Newark tower to request an emergency landing due to smoke in the Boeing 737. "It was very stressful".

Chauvin said she wasn't aware of any injuries but believes one person may have felt unwell after exiting.
