German air accident authority not probing Lufthansa fire at Frankfurt

The German air accident authority (BFU) is not planning to probe a recent fire at Frankfurt airport which led to a Lufthansa A340 sustaining fire damage.

A tug towing the aircraft burst into flames recently on the apron of the German airport. The fire then spread to the Lufthansa A340 with smoke seemingly entering the cockpit.

The accident authority in the country stated it would not begin an investigation as the aircraft was not engaged in any air transport operation at the time.

Lufthansa confirmed that it was a diesel tug that caught fire, not a recently deployed electric aircraft tug.
