Multiple emergency agencies were called for a box alarm at  Austin Straubel Airport  shortly after 11 a.m. Friday morning.

Box alarms signify an "all-hands" response from multiple fire and ambulance services. 

The pilot of a flight 3682 from Minneapolis described a "minor equipment issue" asking for emergency equipment on standby in case of an emergency. The plane landed safely and passengers were able to exit the plane.

NBC26 has a crew on the way and will bring you any information as it becomes available.
