EAST BOSTON (WHDH) – Officials say a fire on board a United Airline flight forced it to land at Boston’s Logan Airport.
The flight had departed Munich, Germany just after 12 p.m. Sunday, and was headed to Washington, DC. It made an emergency landing at Logan Airport shortly after 3:30 p.m.
Officials tell 7News a fire broke out in the galley, where the food is cooked and prepared.
“The pilot told us he saw some smoke at the back of the plane and then we landed, and then we were told there was a fire in oven in the back galley,” one passenger told 7News.
Passengers tell 7News the aircraft was a Boeing 777, meaning there were about 300 passengers on board.
United Airlines is working to get passengers to their final destination Sunday night. It appears no one was injured.
