Maybe Wasn’t The Cargo Fire,
flight CA183 from Beijing to Tokyo found smoke in the front kitchen(Circuit Short Circuit)during the passenger boarding process. The crew quickly took fire extinguishing measures and organized the safe evacuation of all passengers. The specific cause of the incident is under investigation. _
The plane involved is B-5958. It has just completed flight CA976 from Singapore to Beijing and arrived at 3 p.m.

Unfortunately the aircraft is Written off. Just reported.

in my opinion, after watching those videos i don’t think the fire started on cargo holds. we can see no smoke coming out from the cargo hold doors. we could see no fire damages on the cabin area if there were fire on the cargo hold. we only see fire damages on the overhead compartment were electric wires and other cables been placed. It somehow reminds me on Swiss Flight 111 accident. But we will see on the result of the investigation. Opinion is opinion.
