Incident at CAMBRIDGE BAY NU (CYCB)
2001-03-23: FAB 852, a HS 748, departed Cambridge Bay for Gjoa Haven at 1829Z and about 9 minutes later, the crew advised the CARS operator that the a/c had a fire indicator light illuminated and they were returning, with an ETA of 1848Z. The CARS operator implemented the emergency plan and the flight landed safely at 1849Z. The crew reported that there was no fire, but they would need a tow off the runway as the a/c blew a tire on landing. North Bay IFSS was advised and a NOTAM was issued, closing the runway until 2115Z. The a/c was towed clear at 2101Z.
2001-03-23: UPDATE TSB later reported that the a/c experienced a fire warning indication on the number two engine, a Roll-Royce Dart 534-2. The engine was shut down as per company standard operating procedures. The crew returned to Cambridge Bay and landed. During the deceleration, after landing, the crew experienced a flat on #4 tire. The aircraft was stopped on the active runway. The emergency crews met the aircraft and all occupants evacuated. At no time was smoke or fire visible to the aircrew or ground crew. Maintenance and Manufacturing reported that a chafed firewire was the cause of the fire warning. The faulty wire section is being replaced along with the additional maintenance necessary as a result of the checklist actions. A reminder message will be circulated to all maintenance bases concerning the importance of wire security. The tire was replaced and is being routed to Ottawa for further investigation.
