Incident at CALGARY INTL AB (CYYC)

Summary

2001-02-23: UPDATE TSB reported that after push-back, the tug operator advised the crew that there was a fire in number one engine (CFM56-3B1). The engine start was terminated and ERS was called out, but not required. The crew reported that during the start sequence, when the fuel was switched to the ¿on position¿ there was no rise in the EGT, suggesting an abnormal start. The exhaust pipe and fairing areas were inspected for fire damage and none was found. The aircraft was returned to service.
2001-02-16: After push-back at Calgary, the crew of United Air Lines UAL 1649, a B737, was starting the engines when the tow operator observed a fire in the number one engine. CFR was called out but the fire extinguished itself as soon as the crew shut the engine down. The aircraft was then put back in its place for further inspection. No other aircraft or vehicle was affected. It is believed that some excess fuel in the burner may have caused the fire. There was no damage to the engine and the a/c departed without further incident.
