A warning light in the cockpit forced the pilot to abort the Las Vegas-bound flight. 

The pilot made a hard stop, causing the brakes to heat up and blow three tires.

There were 137 passengers and five crew members on board. There were no injuries.

Three buses were sent on to the runway to get the passengers off the plane. Another plane will take the passengers to Las Vegas.

It's not clear what caused a warning light to go off.
