Boeing B787 Aircraft Battery Fire

On 7 January 2013, an electrical burning smell and smoke was reported from the aft passenger cabin of a Boeing 787-8 which had just arrived at Boston from Tokyo Narita on a scheduled passenger flight. It was found that the source of the smoke was the Lithium-Ion APU battery located in the aft electrical equipment bay where both a flame and dense smoke were reported to have been seen coming from the battery case. The ARFF was called and the fire extinguished with a minor burn injury sustained by one fire fighter.
