The brakes for tyres 5 and 6 overheated during a long taxi out for takeoff. The crew decided to return to the stand, but a fire broke out. The aircraft was evacuated.
The brakes overheated due to residual pressure trapped in the alternate brake system caused by a stuck servo valve which resulted from the presence of a high hardness particle in the hydraulic fluid.
