Cargo fire

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


An MD-11 freighter, with 4 crew members on board was en route to its destination when the crew received an indication of a cargo fire. The fire suppression system was automatically activated and for safety reasons the crew decided to divert. They made a safe landing 21 minutes later and evacuated via the emergency slides. During this evacuation, one member of the crew was injured and was taken to a hospital.
