    Passengers had to walk from the tarmac into the airport after their flight landed Sunday night.

    A Southwest plane blew a tire after landing at Lindbergh Field Sunday evening according to airline officials. 

    The passengers had to exit the plane on the tarmac before making their way inside the airport.

    The tire gave out after the plane had already made a safe landing and was taxiing to the gate.

    No injuries were reported and no other flights were disrupted, but the incident did delay passengers headed to Texas.

    "They alerted us and told us that there was a blown tire, and they basically said it's going to be a delay while they put the new tire on,” a Southwest passenger headed to Texas said.

    The flight out was expected to be delayed for about two and a half hours.
