A United flight from Houston to Denver had to abort its takeoff Monday morning.

United Airlines told KTRK-TV there was a mechanical issue, but they did not release any other details.

Portable stairs were brought out to deplane the 164 passengers and 6 crewmembers. They are being transferred to another plane, officials said.

No one was injured.
