The "Bermuda Clipper" was fully loaded, with passengers and crew, ready for departure from Manaus, Brazil.
A fire developed in the carburetor of the No. 1 engine. The pilot directed the flight mechanic to pull the fire extinguisher handle. The mechanic pulled the fuel dump handle by mistake. Flaming gas fell from the carburetor onto the gas on the water, igniting it, and causing the loss of the plane.
