Some tense moments for passengers on a plane about to take off in Fargo for the Twin Cities today. 

A SkyWest Delta Connection flight aborted it's takeoff after a tire blew, and another was shredded as the CRJ-700 was headed down the runway.

KFGO reporter Don Haney spoke with some of the startled passengers of Flight 3703.

No one was hurt, and arrangements were being made to get those people on another flight to MSP. 

The following is a statement from SkyWest:

SkyWest flight 3703, operating as Delta Connection from Fargo, North Dakota, to Minneapolis, Minnesota, experienced a tire issue prior to takeoff in Fargo. Passengers were deplaned through the main cabin door and transported to the terminal. We are working to help passengers resume their travels to Minneapolis as quickly as possible. 

It's not clear what caused the tire to rupture.
