    Local news here in Bay Area just showed helicopter footage of firefighters working on a JAL 788 parked at BOS. Supposedly fire in the cargo hold. Didn't see any smoke in the report.

    A Federal Aviation Administration spokesman said the fire occurred while the plane was sitting at a gate. State Police said there were no crew and no passengers on the plane, which was sitting at Gate E8.

    A government official briefed on the fire said it appeared to have broken out in the avionics section, which is in the plane’s cargo hold. All the passengers had disembarked after a routine arrival from Tokyo this morning and most of the bags had been unloaded. The plane was slated to leave again this afternoon.

    Boston Fire Department spokesman Steve MacDonald said his department had responded at 10:40 a.m. to assist the Massport Fire Department with a report of an electrical fire on a plane.

    MacDonald said his department had one engine and one ladder truck at the plane and another engine staged at the airport’s North Gate.

    Glad to hear the plane was free of crew and passengers.
