On September 2015 the Boeing 777 of British Airways Flight 2276 suffered an uncontained engine failure and fire in the left (#1) GE90 engine during take-off from Las Vegas-McCarran International Airport, prompting an aborted take-off and the evacuation of all passengers and crew.
All 170 people on board survived, but 20 were injured. The aircraft, which suffered moderate damage to a section of its forward fuselage as of a result of the vigorous fire, returned to passenger service in March 2016.

Details of British Airways Flight 2276 Incident
A 16 years old Boeing 777-236ER, s/n 29320, registered as G-VIIO delivered new to British Airways on 26 January 1999 left Terminal 3, Gate E3, at 15:53 local time, and began its take-off from Runway 07L at 16:12 where the incident occurred.
After noticing what the pilot later described as a “catastrophic failure of the engine” well before take-off speed, the flight crew aborted the take-off by using the aircraft’s brakes
The airport’s emergency services extinguished the fire within five minutes of the mayday call.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) indicated the fire was caused by the failure of the left General Electric GE90 engine, one of two fitted on the aircraft. The aircraft came to a halt upwind, causing the fire to be blown towards the fuselage; the aircraft sustained localised, but major, structural damage as a result. The aircraft was equipped with suppression systems, though the systems did not extinguish the fire
All 170 passengers and crew escaped. Nineteen people sustained minor injuries and one person sustained serious injuries.
