A US Airways plane blew a tire while taking off Thursday evening at Philadelphia International Airport, prompting it to abruptly come to a stop, an airline spokesman said.

Todd Lechmacher, the US Airways spokesman, said there were no initial reports of injuries, but a Philadelphia fire department spokesman told CNN that there was one minor injury.

Passengers on the Fort Lauderdale, Florida, bound flight were evacuated from the plane onto the runway and, as of 7 p.m. ET, were awaiting pickup, according to Lechmacher.
