The pilot of a private plane carrying five passengers and two crewmen Saturday afternoon taxied off a runway at Wiley Post Airport, the Oklahoma City Fire Department reported.

After smelling smoke coming from the cockpit, the pilot pulled into the nearest taxi-way while landing safely at about 4:15 p.m. Saturday, said Fire Battalion Chief Steve Lumry.

Lumry and Oklahoma City firefighters responded to a call from the pilot to investigate the cause of the fire and discovered a hydraulic leak.

There were no injuries and no damage was reported.
