"In a move to introduce new safety recommendations for detection of concealed fires in cargo containers the NTSB stated that "the early stages of a fire burning inside a cargo container are concealed from detection. In later stages, when the fire grows and does become detectable, it rapidly intensifies and burns through the container to become a substantial threat to the aircraft and crew""
