Détails:
Shortly after departure an uncontrollable fire developed in the engine compartment. The pilot returned to land at The Pas. The occupants safely escaped but the Otter was destroyed by fire.
Subsequent investigation revealed that a drain plug was missing from the carburettor float chamber, allowing fuel to escape into the engine. The fire occurred five flight hours after the installation of an overhauled engine.
