Saudi 747 wing on fire.

Found this on the net.

http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/breakin...sh----official

The article mentions fire coming from the right hand wing. Does anybody know what happened and if indeed the wing was on fire or just flames from one of the engines?

Air Atlanta.

Air force officials and firefighters stationed at the airport managed to extinguish the fire within half an hour and all the passengers were evacuated before any damage was done,"
HALF AN HOUR ???? WTF!
