An Ethiopian Airlines Cargo Boeing 777F caught fire at Shanghai Pudong Airport

Ethiopian Airlines 777F cargo plane caught fire at Shanghai Pudong International Airport. No casualties were reported.

The fire began on the main cargo deck and broke through to the top of the fuselage in the aft compartment. The incident, Airline Ratings reports, is almost identical to another fire on an Ethiopian 787 at Heathrow in 2013, which was caused by a battery leak. At the same time, there are no official reasons for what happened.

The plane on which the incident occurred in Shanghai, according to Flightglobal, was released about five years ago. A Chinese media report at 5:00 pm local time said the fire had been extinguished and an investigation was underway into the incident.
