The gaseous oxygen bottles for the quick-don oxygen masks in the cockpit, said bottles being accessed from the lower fuselage of the aircraft exterior, were being serviced by a ground maintenance crew while the aircraft's own auxiliary power unit (APU) was running. A fire in this area of the fuselage subsequently broke out and could not be contained before extensive damage to the airframe occurred.
