A fire occurred in the forward baggage compartment while the aircraft was on a flight from Sao Paulo to Uberlandia. The fire extinguisher was not used because the pilot thought that the fumes would invade the flight deck reducing the already poor visibility. An emergency landing was carried out on Sao Paulo-Viracopos runway 10, but the plane overran onto an area where the runway was being reconstructed.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "1) Fire in the front luggage compartment. 2) Pilot misjudged distance. 3) Brakes and reverse thrust used too late. 4) Inadequate runway surface."
