A Tampa International Airport spokeswoman says a runway was closed after a USAirways jet apparently blew its front tires while landing.

Airport spokeswoman Brenda Geoghagan says no passengers or crew on flight 1241 from Philadelphia were hurt when the jet landed Saturday afternoon. The passengers were taken to a secure area and then released to claim their baggage.

The incident left debris on the runway.
