A small plane made an emergency landing on U.S. 27 in Broward County on Tuesday evening.

It happened near the 1000 block in the southbound lanes near Pembroke Road. The pilot called in engine trouble and made the landing. No injuries were reported.

Pembroke Pines Police said there was no damage to the plane or to any surrounding roads or homes. They said the plane was occupied by the pilot and one passenger.

The FAA was called to the scene to investigate. Pembroke Pines Fire crews responded to plug a fuel leak from the plane.

The plane is expected to be towed from the area on Wednesday. It's a single-engine propeller, fixed-wing aircraft.

U.S. 27 was closed for a short time but has since been reopened.
