The National Transportation Safety Board, the organization looking into the battery fire that grounded Boeing's 787 Dreamliners, is releasing an interim report about the fire tomorrow.

The safety board will publish the report here at 8 a.m. PT in a public docket.

"The information being released is factual in nature and does not provide any analysis," according to a press release from the board. "The docket contains the interim factual report and related documents.... Additional material will be added to the docket as it becomes available."

The lithium-ion battery fire aboard the Japan Airlines Boeing 787-8 in January led to the Federal Aviation Administration grounding the entire fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliners. The fire was discovered by staff while the plane was parked at Boston Logan International Airport for cleaning.

The 50 grounded planes are currently scattered around the world.
