MIAMI — An official says two tires blew out when a passenger plane landed at Miami International Airport.

Airport spokesman Mark Henderson told the Miami Herald that the American Airlines flight was arriving from New York at 11:30 a.m. Friday

American Airlines spokesman Ross Feinstein says the plane had to be towed from the runway, and its 160 passengers were taken to the terminal on a shuttle bus.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue spokeswoman Kirsten Miller says firefighters helped move the passengers off the plane. No injuries were reported.
