iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — The Dow Jones Industrial Average called it a week, advancing only modestly. The blue chips index closed up three points at 15,464 — another record close.

The Nasdaq Composite added 22 points to close at 3,600, while the S&P 500 gained five points, closing at 1,680 — also finishing at an all time high.
 
Meanwhile, a fire on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner caused the jet maker’s stock to tank Friday. It fell as much as seven percent on word of the incident on the runway at London’s Heathrow Airport.  A second “technical issue” occurred Friday on another Dreamliner, forcing the flight to return to it’s starting point in Manchester, England.
