Fire Summary

Summary There was post-crash fire which consumed about 85% of the aircraft. There was no evidence of in-flight fire before the crash. One of the buildings the airplane crashed into was a printing press with a huge amount of paper and other printing materials which enhanced the fire. The Fire Service ran out of water and it was very difficult to replenish supply because of the crowd and poor road network.
