Wonder could it have been a Toilet fire, heard it once happened on a A300 pilot used the toilet on the way out, toilet motor kept running and caught fire, skipper got an interesting phone call in the hotel, one of the loaders noticed it and put it out.

DHL Air or EAT will probably be donating one of there shinny new 300s as a replacement.

All seems to be quiet on the DHL front these days.....all must be good in LEJ

Could it have been from a discarded cigarette? Is smoking permitted on cargo aircraft?
