Emergency responders from North Metro Fire rushed to the airport in Broomfield just after 8 a.m.

The balloon was forced to make an unplanned landing in grass near one of its three runways after winds shifted.

The landing did not impact airport operations although one runway was temporarily closed while crews removed the balloon from the airport.

There were 13 people on board who spilled out of the basket. No one was injured.
