A fire incident occurred at Montreal-Trudeau International Airport on July 9, involving an Air Canada Boeing 777-300. The incident took place on the airport tarmac, prompting the response of Montreal firefighters.

At approximately 3:25 p.m., a vehicle parked underneath the Air Canada aircraft caught fire, leading to the swift intervention of authorities. Thankfully, no injuries were reported, and firefighters were able to bring the fire under control within thirty minutes.

Air Canada confirmed that the vehicle involved in the incident was a water truck. The airline stated that the affected aircraft is currently undergoing inspection, and an investigation into the incident has been initiated.
