Engine fire on jet from Dubai quickly extinguished at Logan

An engine fire on an Emirates Airline 777 jet was extinguished quickly after the plane landed Sunday afternoon at Logan International Airport, according to Massachusetts Port Authority. Massport Fire Rescue began fighting the small fire in one of Flight 237’s engines soon after it arrived from Dubai about 2 p.m., extinguishing the blaze within six minutes, said spokesman Matthew Brelis. The plane was towed to the gate, where passengers were able to disembark, Brelis said. None of the flight’s 349 passengers or 18 crew members was injured, he said.
