Mechanics are trying to determine why a fire warning light came on a Southwest Airlines plane bound for Las Vegas, causing the pilot to abort takeoff in Denver.

The incident caused three tires to blow out as the plane stopped abruptly on the runway on Monday. Airport officials say no fire was found.

The plane was departing Denver International Airport with 137 passengers and five crew members. No one was injured, and passengers were moved to a later flight.
