An Air Canada Boeing 777-300ER was damaged yesterday at Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL) after a water truck caught fire while parked underneath the aircraft. Luckily, no injuries have been reported even though some passengers were still on board when the fire started.

The videos above show the truck aflame under the back of the Boeing 777.

Air Canada flight AC885 had just arrived from Geneva Airport (GVA). While parked at Gate 66, a service vehicle caught fire. The flames grew so high that they were able to damage the fuselage and one of the plane’s doors. Thick black smoke also filled the cabin as it burned. About 20 firefighters were able to contain the blaze and had the fire under control in around 30 minutes.

The cause of the fire has yet to be determined and the aircraft was taken out of service for evaluation.

Anthony’s Take: Thankfully, this fire was put out before there were any injuries or any additional damage done to the plane.
