Boeing 787 Catches Fire At Boston Airport Gate

A Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft with no passengers on board caught fire at Boston's Logan Airport when a battery in its auxiliary electrical system exploded, officials said.
A mechanic inspecting the Japan Airlines jet discovered smoke in the cockpit while performing a routine post-flight inspection and reported it to airport authorities at around 10:30 am EST (1530 GMT), said Massport Fire Chief Bob Donahue.
A fire crew responded and determined that a battery used to power the plane's electric systems when the engines are not running had exploded, Donahue said. The mechanic was the only person on board the plane when the smoke was discovered and no one was hurt by the blaze, he added.
"Passengers were in no danger as this event had happened at least 15 minutes after they deplaned," Donahue said.
The fire is the latest reported mechanical failure in a string of incidents affecting the 787, which was also plagued by production problems that delayed initial delivery by 3-1/2 years.
