FAA spokesman Jim Peters said the crew noticed a problem with “hot brakes” while taxiing to the runway. The plane turned around but was forced to stop and deplane passengers before reaching the gate.

“All passengers are safe, the situation is currently being handled,” airport officials said in a tweet.

The plane remains on the airfield and Massport fire trucks have responded.

“The airline and authorities will investigate,” airport officials said in a tweet.
