GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP)  No injuries have been reported after a small plane ran into a terminal at the Central Nebraska Regional Airport in Grand Island.

Fire crews were dispatched to the scene just before 3 p.m. Wednesday because fuel was leaking from the single-engine aircraft.

Airport Executive Director Mike Olson says the pilot had started the engine and was preparing to taxi onto a runway when he lost power to the brakes and nose wheel control. The plane rolled into the front of the Trego Dugan terminal, breaking a window and denting the plane's nose.

Records say the plane had landed in Grand Island on its way from Chicago to the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport near Broomfield, Colo.
