    An American Airlines plane blew two tires as it landed at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport on Monday afternoon, aviation officials said.

    Flight 810, a Boeing 737-800, was coming in from Reno, Nevada, fire department spokesman Larry Langford told NBC Chicago.

    The plane's two left main landing gear tires blew after landing at 12:30 p.m., the airline said.

    The 137 passengers on board were deplaned on the taxiway via a portable staircase. Buses transported the passengers to the terminal.

    No injuries were reported among the passengers or five crew members.

    American Airlines personnel changed the tires and the aircraft was taken to a hangar, the airline said in a statement.
