BOSTON (CBS) – A Japan Airlines jet leaked fuel at Logan Airport Tuesday, a day after a similar plane from the same airline caught fire at the airport.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Lana Jones reports

The 787 Boeing Dreamliner leaked 40 gallons of fuel around noon before it was due to take off for Tokyo, Massport reported.

The jet was stopped on the runway and returned to the gate.

There are no reports of any injuries.

Carol Anderson, a spokesperson for Japan Airlines, told WBZ-TV this is not the same plane that caught fire Monday at Logan.

The NTSB is still investigating that incident, which is believed to have been an electrical fire.

According to WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Lana Jones, flight 007 is now scheduled to take off for Tokyo at 3:30 p.m.

Japan Airlines launched the first non-stop service from Logan to Tokyo’s Narita Airport using the new Boeing 787 back in April.
