First responders stand on the scene after a small plane made an emergency landing on a major thoroughfare in Reno on Tuesday, May 24, 2016. No one was hurt, but the incident tied up traffic on McCarran Boulevard on the southwest side of town near Coughlin Ranch.

RENO — A small plane made an emergency landing on a major thoroughfare in southwest Reno, tying up afternoon traffic but apparently causing no injuries.

Fire officials say the single-engine Cessna 182A suffered some damage when it landed on the southbound lanes of McCarran Boulevard near Coughlin ranch at about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Reno police spokesman Tim Broadway says neither of the two people on board was hurt.

FAA records indicate the plane is registered to Extreme Source Inc., a Truckee, California-based company that has provided skydiving flights in the past.

The plane was built in 1958 and last was certified by the FAA in July 2015.
