    A flight from Denver to San Francisco was delayed due to a bomb threat.

    A plane bound from Denver International Airport to San Francisco has been evacuated after federal officials were notified of a bomb threat to a United Airlines plane.

    Carrie Harmon of the Transportation Security Administration says someone phoned in a bomb threat at about 7:30 a.m. on Thursday against United Flight 869.

    The flight was expected to land in San Francisco around 11:15 a.m. on Thursday.

    She said passengers, cargo and baggage were removed for re-screening. There were reports that nothing was found on the plane after it was screened.

    The TSA says after the plane was evacuated, it was removed to a remote location at the airport where it is being searched.

    The TSA said the passengers were boarded on another plane for the flight to San Francisco.
