JUNEAU (AP) -- A Continental Airlines jet bound for Anchorage made an emergency landing here after the pilot reported fuel problems on Monday.

The Boeing 757 jet, which left Houston carrying 177 people, landed uneventfully at about 2:15 p.m. and was expected to depart later Monday, an airline spokesman said. There were no injuries.

The plane landed in Juneau after the pilot reported a possible fuel loss and declared an emergency, said Continental spokesman Rahsaan Johnson.
