Seattle TV Station says washer caused fire on ZA002

A Seattle TV (KING 5) station is reporting that a washer came into contact with parts inside the P100 panel which started the fire. The contact caused a short circuit which sparked the fire on ZA002. The good news is that there will be relatively simple redesign but we have yet to hear about this as well as and potential redesign to make sure that the 787 has full electrical redundancies in these types of emergency situations.

KING 5 also says that Boeing is expected to make a statement today. The stock market is closed so it should be out soon. Stay tuned....
