A fire broke out on a new, highly-touted plane that had just landed at Logan Airport this morning.
The Japan Airlines’ Boeing 787 Dreamliner had just landed at Logan Airport and all passengers and crew had deplaned.
A mechanic was performing a walk through of the plane just after 10:30 a.m. when he noticed a “light smoke condition increasing from the underbelly of the plane,” according to the Boston Fire Department.
He notified Massport fire crews which were assisted by Boston fire crews.
The fire was contained in a compartment with batteries and other electrical components in the cargo area.
There were no reported injuries.
The plane was highly-touted during a ceremony at Logan Airport in March. It allows for the first-ever nonstop service between Boston and Asia in Logan’s history.
Airport, airline and other aviation officials billed the plane as one of the most efficient airplanes ever to be built.
Officials are investigating
