16 Jun 2015 - A Boeing 737-300, LY-FLB operated by Scat Airlines had arrived at Aktau (Kazakhstan), after an uneventful flight. The passengers had disembarked and the aircraft was being prepared for the next sector, when a fire in the forward cabin caused substantial damage to the aircraft before emergency services were able to put the fire out.

The Kazakhstan Ministry of Transport reported in a press release that the fire started in the forward cargo bay between STA360 and STA440 between S-24R and S-18R stringers. An oxygen hose to carry compressed oxygen was damaged while charging the oxygen cells on board from the supply on land resulting in an instant self-inflammation of the compressed oxygen due to dynamically disturbed oxygen flow mixing with dust and fine powder environment in the forward cargo compartment near the oxygen cells of the aircraft oxygen system.
