The Wasaya Airways Hawker Siddeley HS-748 aircraft was parked on the ramp at Sandy Lake Airport (CZSJ). The flight crew had disembarked and were off-loading the cargo (JET A-1 jet fuel) from the aircraft to fuel tanks adjacent to the ramp. A leak occurred in a hose downstream of the pumps (located on the ground beside the aircraft). The ambient wind blew vapours toward the pumps and a fire broke out. The flight crew used the available fire extinguishers but the fire spread and consumed most of the aircraft, which was destroyed. There were no injuries.
Even though the occurrence resulted in a hull loss, the occurrence is not an accident as defined in ICAO Annex 13.
