Was perusing a local TV station website when I ran across this news item about an incident that occurred Wednesday (yesterday):

"Emergency Vehicles Respond To Bathroom Fire Onboard US Airways Plane"

Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - Syracuse police and fire crews were called to Hancock International Airport Wednesday afternoon after a fire was reported onboard incoming US Air Flight 3404.

The fire was reported about five minutes prior to the plane’s landing at Hancock.

Using the time, date, and flight number from the article, I searched to come up with the actual flight log and times, then located the specific SYR archive with the activity.  

The aircraft was a Republic Airlines Embraer ERJ-175 flying under the US Airways name, similar to this ERJ-175 here:

Here is the flight track:

The clip combines approach and tower/ground communications.

Nice clip!

I'm betting someone was smoking :)

Nah, everyone knows that smoking in the aircraft lavatories is illegal.  ;-)

It was probably the end result of some very spicy chicken wings.

  I think your fire beats my ice up problem, exciting day on the air yesterday!
