(CNN) -- A Delta Air Lines plane headed to Ohio from Georgia blew a tire before take-off Thursday night -- then blew three more as it was moved to the taxiway, a spokesman said.

No one was hurt, and the airline is looking into what prompted the tire failure, said airline spokesman Carlos Santos.

The DC-9 was on its way from Atlanta to Dayton Ohio when it blew the first tire, Santos said.

As it was pulled to the taxiway of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the other three failed, he said.
