The NTSB urges quick replacement of light bulbs in the cargo holds of Boeing 777 planes after an Emirates Airlines flight experienced a fire warning Sept. 28, 2003. The heat of a halogen light bulb was found to have ignited a bag when the flight from Dubai to Singapore diverted to Chennai, India, after discharging a fire extinguishing agent into the cargo hold.
