Farnborough: Qatar Airways 787  minor incident. From Flightglobal.
"UPDATE: Air show organisers have confirmed a ground power unit servicing the 787 started smoking and caught fire, triggering the emergency response. It happens sometimes. Ground power units can overheat if they run out of fuel."

Indeed, it does happen sometimes. It happened in Everett a year ago, didn't make the news though.
