Engine problems forced a small plane pilot to make an emergency landing at a southern New Jersey airport Saturday. The Diamond DA42 plane was headed to Wilmington, Del. when the pilot reported its engine fire warning indicator light had been activated, said Holly Baker, a spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration.

The fixed-wing, multiengine aircraft was diverted to Atlantic City International Airport, where the pilot - the lone person onboard - landed shortly after 1 p.m. without incident.

Baker said no fire was observed as the plane landed, but there were signs that one may have occurred while the plane was airborne.

No injuries were reported.

The FAA will investigate the incident.
