Alaska Airlines says Flight 322 landed in San Jose, California, just before 7 p.m. PT after the flight crew requested that emergency crews meet the Boeing 737 upon landing. Three flight attendants were evaluated by the San Jose Fire Department; one was transported to the hospital.

None of the flight's 181 passengers reported feeling ill.

According to Alaska Airlines, those in the front of the aircraft had noticed a light white powdery substance coming out of a ceiling vent during the flight.

Hazmat crews are evaluating the aircraft, but the airline believes the unknown substance was from deicing fluid used prior to departure from Seattle.
