An ATR 42-300 aircraft operated by Calm Air International, was conducting a flight from Rankin Inlet (CYRT), NU to Repulse Bay (CYUT), NU with 3 crew members and 14 passengers on board. In the descent through 4000 feet, the flight crew selected level 2 ice protection. At approximately 2500 feet, the flight crew smelled electrical smoke followed by a dark grey smoke emitting from the first officer's side window. Once clear of icing conditions, the crew reverted to level 1 ice protection, notified CYUT CARS of the cockpit smoke and declared an emergency. On landing, the crew observed that the first officer side window and electrical connection began to burn and melt. While the aircraft taxied off the runway small flames appeared.
The crew notified the flight attendant, shut down the aircraft, and discharged the hand held fire extinguisher onto the burning portion of the window and associated electrical connection; extinguishing the fire. RCMP and volunteer fire department were dispatched to the aircraft and remained near the aircraft for 30 minutes post fire, to ensure no re-ignition of fire.
