this reminds me of Swiss Air #111, thank goodness they were able to divert before this became a bigger issue.

The fire was from a battery pack that was stuck in the seat probably from an earlier flight.

"smoke was from a TV unit"..."There was no big commotion."
Commotion=a state of confused and noisy disturbance.
We might have more commotion here in this forum :-)

:) I think there were conflicting reports of the source of the fire.. I only read the article posted here, but after reading the Guardian article (and other sources), it refers to charging devices

Charging devices is something that is needs to be stopped.

Please just read the article in the Guardian for which the OP provided a link. It quotes the Massachusetts state police.

Yes, and are they the NTSB who has completed a full investigation? Didn't think so.
