The military surplus DC-3 N91375 had been stored without engines at Goodyear-Litchfield Park NAS, AZ. The company that purchased the aircraft flew in the engines and installed them on the aircraft. A ferry permit was obtained to fly the aircraft to Litchfield Park Airport, located 5 miles north of the Naval Air Station where a final check was planned before flying to Coatsville, PA.
While approaching the airport, smoke was observed in the cockpit. An electrical fire was suspected and the battery and generators were turned off. When the landing gear was lowered the smoke intensity increased and upon lowering of the flaps, increased still more. After landing fire was observed in the no. 2 engine accessory section, so the firewall shutoff valves were activated. Further attempts to contain and extinguish the fire, failed.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "In-flight fuel fed engine fire for an undetermined reason."
