MIAMI (AP) — Authorities say a Delta plane's engine failed in mid-air over Florida, forcing the flight to make an emergency landing.

Broward County Aviation Department spokesman Greg Meyer said Sunday that several pieces of what appears to be the damaged engine were recovered from near the highway that runs alongside the Fort Lauderdale airport.

No injuries were reported. It was not immediately clear what caused the engine failure.

Meyer says the plane landed safely Sunday morning and the 140 passengers headed for Minneapolis are being rebooked on other flights.

Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen says a safety inspector is headed to the scene to determine what happened.

A Delta spokesperson could not immediately be reached for comment.
