An Air China flight made an emergency landing early Friday at Los Angeles International Airport after the pilot reported at least one tire had blown out, authorities said.

The Boeing 747, carrying more than 200 passengers, had just taken off from LAX headed for Beijing when the pilot reported a problem with a tire, officials said. The plane returned to the airport and touched down shortly before 3:30 a.m. There were no reports of injuries, police said.

It was unclear how many tires were involved, but tire debris was found on the runway, authorities said.
