Boeing stock falls after fire on plane

LONDON — A fire aboard an empty 787 at Heathrow Airport spooked Boeing investors Friday, as they feared the reemergence of battery problems that grounded the plane for months earlier this year.

Boeing shares lost $5.01, dropping 4.7 percent to $101.87. At its peak, the selling knocked off $7.89 a share, or $6 billion of market value. The stock recovered slightly as speculation about the cause of the fire on the Ethiopian Airlines plane shifted away from the batteries.
