This week Delta flight 6024, an Embraer 175, due to fly RDU to BOS, was diverted to JFK because of indicators showing of an onboard fire, a serious situation on a flight.
Much like your fire alarm going off when you toast bread, this alert was not a serious as originally suggested as the cause was an overheated coffee pot.
That said, I prefer the airlines to be over rather than under-careful.
