A pilot had to make an unscheduled landing after an overheated laptop caught fire in a Lufthansa plane.

The Monday night flight was destined for Frankfurt, Germany.

But after leaving Los Angeles, the pilot had to make a detour to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.

The airline said a passenger’s laptop overheated and caught fire.

Monday night’s surprise landing in O’Hare was a precautionary measure following the incident.

The fire was extinguished when the plane landed safely, WLS-TV reported.

None of the passengers were injured, but two flight attendants were treated for smoke inhalation after the “unscheduled landing,” Lufthansa said in a statement.

The airline said its ground staff are helping passengers rebook flights to their final destinations and regrets the inconvenience caused to passengers.
