State Police report a Virgin Atlantic plane, on its way from New York to London, landed at Logan last night due a fire in the passenger compartment.
State Police say plane crew members were able to put out the fire, which filled the cabin with smoke before the plane landed at Logan at 8:48 p.m.
MSP [bomb squad] located and examined a device located between the cushions of the seat that ignited. Preliminary investigation suggests it is a battery pack consistent in appearance with an external phone charger.
The plane had 217 passengers, State Police say.
