Here's a link to a local news story. It says they diverted due to smoke in the cabin. The smoke was traced to a "suspicious" lavatory fire.

Yes the plane was on its way here to Huntsville, only a 30 minute flight usually. The smoke was caused by someone lighting a piece of newspaper in the lav. THe paper has been sent to the FBI crime lab to analyze it for fingerprints. 48 pax on board, i think that they can expect to be interviewed by the FBI. That's a serious crime, lighting something like that.

How far away from the ATL airport is Rome, GA?

They say lighting a match is a better air freshener than Lysol. I read that in some advice column once.

If lighting a match is better than lysol then imagine what lighting an entire CRJ would do!

I think you're on to something there. I'm sure the FBI won't mind if they give it any thought.
