Logan planes sent to Manchester after airport fire
The Manchester airport had refueled four planes as of 9:30 p.m. Tuesday and was scheduled to refuel three more Tuesday night should repairs at Logan not be completed, said J. Brian O’Neill, deputy airport director.
“Manchester is fully capable of handling these diversions,” he said.
O’Neill said Manchester could continue to accept planes today if needed.
According Massachusetts Port Authority, the operator of Logan, the fire broke out about 5 p.m. and was under control a half-hour later.
“There are no injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation. As a safety precaution, use of the underground fuel system has been temporarily suspended. Passengers should check with their airline on flight status before heading to the airport,” the port authority said in a statement.
