BALTIMORE, Oct. 1 (UPI) -- A charter plane carrying the Baltimore Orioles made an emergency landing in Jacksonville, Fla., because of a smoking oven in the galley, the team said.

The plane was en route to St. Petersburg/Clearwater International Airport Sunday night when smoke started coming out of the galley area, The Baltimore Sun reported.

"Due to a minor incident in the galley, the Orioles charter made an unscheduled landing ... . After the plane was inspected, all crew and passengers reboarded and flew to St. Petersburg without further incident. This unscheduled landing was done with an abundance of caution and at no time was anyone on the flight in danger," the team said in a statement.

The plane landed in St. Petersburg around 11 p.m., the Sun reported.
