According to a tweet by ANI, the fire took place in the Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) of the plane.

The fire started when the technician was repairing the air conditioner (AC) in the flight.

However, the Air India termed it as a minor incident, since the plane was empty at the time of repair work, and was doused immediately.
