LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) – A runway at McCarran International Airport had to be closed for 45 minutes tonight after a hydraulic spill by a landing plane.

According to McCarran spokesman Mark Suman, a Southwest Airlines flight reported a “degraded brake system” to the control tower just before 8 p.m. The plane landed at 8:14 p.m. on the East-West runway that runs parallel with Sunset Road.

The runway was closed after crews removed the plane and cleaned the spill from the runway. It reopened at 8:59 p.m.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
