According to: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/43039451/ns/travel-news/?gt1=43001

Quote:
Airline spokesman Jim Faulkner says mechanics believe the smoke came from a small fluid leak in an auxiliary power unit. They expect to fix the problem quickly and use the same plane to take the passengers to Chicago.

Pretty much non-news as an "emergency", but was wondering how quick, "quickly" would be in fixing a leak in the APU.

Thanks for any insight into that.

Probably not "fixed". More likely the APU was just MELed inop, and dispatched shut down until it can be fixed.

Well, smoke in the cabin, no matter how light, is never a good thing.

Probably an overnight fix. They probably just MEL'd the APU system, fired up the air start, and sent it on it's way. They'll fix it in ORD.
