This morning, a PSA CRJ2 from Albany, NY to Washington National had a smoke incident in the rear lavatory. Here's what Simon wrote at avherald.com:

"A PSA Airlines Canadair CRJ-200 on behalf of US Airways, registration N218PS performing flight US-2357 from Albany,NY to Washington National,DC (USA), was enroute at FL280 about 75nm northeast of Philadelphia,PA (USA) when the crew reported smoke in the cockpit and decided to divert to Philadelphia. The airport prepared for a major alert and for the closure of all runways as result of the alert status. On final approach the crew, audibly on oxygen masks, advised they had an aft lavatory fire indication, there was smoke in the cabin, there was no smoke in the cockpit, they were planning to evacuate after landing. The aircraft landed safely on Philadelphia's runway 27L about 20 minutes later and stopped on the runway and was evacuated, all runways were closed for about 30 minutes until emergency services started to return runways one by one back to tower.

While all runways were still closed another flight declared fuel emergency and proceeded to land while the airport was still closed, about 2 minutes later emergency services returned runway 27R to tower permitting the fuel emergency to land on that runway."

I captured a lot of audio, but missed one handoff from ZNY to another center sector. I caught up with the story again on initial approach to KPHL. I also left in certain other communications relevant to the emergency.

I'm not entirely sure... from the full audio, it wasn't clear to me which aircraft had the fuel emergency, but by that point I was listening to Tower and not Approach which is probably where the emergency declaration was made.
