Lufthansa plane lands at O’Hare International Airport after laptop fire


A Lufthansa flight from Los Angeles to Frankfurt, Germany, made an unscheduled landing at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport after a passenger’s laptop caught fire, the airline said.

The airline said Monday night’s landing in O’Hare was a precautionary measure after an overheated laptop caused a small fire in the cabin.

The fire was extinguished by the time the plane landed safely, WLS-TV report.

Lufthansa said in a statement that no passengers were injured, but that two flight attendants were treated for smoke inhalation after an “unscheduled landing”.

The airline said ground staff were helping passengers rebook flights to their final destinations, and said it “regrets the inconvenience caused to passengers.”
