working on the audio on this one, have you ever tracked a UPS flight out of there, they're all UPS flights :)
So far have them going to Indy Center, this one will take a while to piece together.

A UPS United Parcel Service McDonnell Douglas MD-11 freighter, registration N275UP performing flight 5X-1276 from Louisville,KY to Raleigh/Durham,NC (USA) with 2 crew, was climbing out of Louisville's runway 17L just after being handed off to center when the crew reported they had a cargo fire indication and needed to return to Louisville for an ILS approach to runway 17L. Back on approach control to Louisville the crew, now audibly on oxygen masks, reported they now also had smoke in the cockpit and requested and were cleared for a visual approach to runway 17R, the crew advised they would stop on the runway. The aircraft landed without further incident, vacated the runway and stopped just clear of the runway, where the crew evacuated via slides.

The FAA reported: "AIRCRAFT RETURNED TO LOUISVILLE AFTER DECLARING AN EMERGENCY DUE TO FIRE INDICATOR LIGHT. CREW EVACUATED VIA AIRCRAFT SLIDES AFTER CLEARING THE RUNWAY, LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY."
