En route some bottles broke, causing a fire after the solution came into contact with the heating system of the cargo bay. The flight made an emergency descent and attempted an emergency landing 1,5 km north-west of Grakhovo, but the aircraft erupted in flames on touch-down as more glass bottles were destroyed on impact and a large amount of explosive chemicals was set free.
