On September 6, 2017, at about 0019 Pacific daylight time, a Delta Air Lines Boeing 757-200, registration N686DA, equipped with two Pratt & Whitney PW2037 turbofan engines, sustained a No. 1 (left) engine undercowl fire during takeoff from McCarran International Airport (LAS)- Las Vegas, Nevada. The flight crew reported a left engine fire indication and associated aural fire alert at rotation/initial climb. The crew completed the quick reference handbook (QRH) procedures, shut down the left engine, and discharged one of the fire bottles. The flight crew then initiated LAS engine out procedures to return to the airport. On the downwind leg of the pattern, a second left engine fire warning indication was reported and the second fire bottle was discharged. The crew made an uneventful overweight landing at LAS and were met by aircraft rescue and firefighting (ARFF) on the runway. ARFF sprayed fire retardant into the engine and the airplane was cleared to taxi to the gate under its own power. No injuries were reported to passengers or crew. The flight was being operated in accordance with 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 121 and was a regularly scheduled flight from LAS to John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK)- Queens, New York.
