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.

Although the route was significantly longer, it took almost two hours less than the original journey - lasting 14 hours and 30 minutes in total.
