    UK Guardian: Plane fire closes Heathrow airport runways: Emergency services tackle blaze on empty Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner sitting on tarmac (July 12 2013)

    A fire on an Ethiopian Airlines jet on the tarmac at Heathrow Airport has forced Britain's busiest airport to close both of its runways as emergency services tackle the blaze.

    No one is believed to have been on board the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, a type of long-range, mid-size airliner, which has been at the centre of troubles in the recent past following a series of battery fires. The plane was on the stand and there were no reports of injuries.
