Saw this on the news. Luckily the fire stopped and everyone was evacuated safely.

Hmmm…

Very similar to the BA 777 in the same situation at LAS a bit ago.

Different engines though.

Maybe the problem could be a design flaw in the GE engines in all 777s or simply something went wrong like a mechanical failure or maintenance error…

Korean has PWs and BA used Trents.
