Another cell phone fire

There has been another incidence of a cellphone catching fire, this time on an Air Canada flight.

A passenger was burned in a fire caused by a cellphone on board an Air Canada flight this morning, just as the aircraft was preparing to leave Toronto en route to Vancouver.

The fire broke out this morning on board Air Canada flight AC101, at Pearson International Airport.

The cellphone owner was injured in the fire, but was able to walk off the plane without assistance and was treated for burns.

“The fire was immediately extinguished by crews and there was no damage to the aircraft,” Air Canada spokesperson Peter Fitzpatrick said.

The make and model of the phone is currently unknown.
