Engine fire indicator light prompts American flight on DFW runway to call emergency crews

On Monday morning, an American Airlines flight preparing to depart Dallas/Fort Worth Airport for Detroit called for emergency crews as its engine fire indicator light came on.

According to a statement from the airport, fire crews arrived to Runway 17C where the Boeing 737 had been readying for take-off but no smoke or fire was found. The aircraft returned to the gate under its own power around 7:15 a.m.

"Runways at DFW were closed briefly during the response to the incident, in accordance with normal procedure, but all runways were re-opened within 10-15 minutes," the airport said. "The incident did cause some delays to subsequent flights scheduled around that time, but operations have now returned to normal."
