BOSTON (WHDH) - Officials say a fire on board a Virgin Atlantic Flight forced it to land at Boston’s Logan Airport on Thursday.
The flight departed from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York bound for London when a fire broke out in the passenger compartment, according to a spokesperson for the Massachusetts State Police.
All 217 passengers were evacuated. No one was seriously injured.
Investigators believe the fire was sparked by a malfunctioning battery pack in a phone charger.
The State Police Bomb Squad inspected the plane.
It is unclear when a replacement plane will be found.
