A Boeing 787 Dreamliner caught fire at Britain’s Heathrow airport forcing two runways to close down on Friday. The cause of the fire is being investigated and it is possible it was caused by a problem with the battery which has caused previous fires on Dreamliner.

The airport confirmed in a tweet that there were no passengers aboard the plane as nearly a dozen fire trucks cam on the scene. Shares on Boeing have fallen more than 1.3 % after the news.
