    Looks like the fire started in or around the toilet. It might have been deliberate if it started there. :eek:

    (CNN)Investigators trying to piece together what caused EgyptAir Flight 804 to plunge into the Mediterranean Sea now have another clue.

    The plane's cockpit voice recorder indicates there was a fire on the aircraft before it crashed -- and an attempt to put it out, a senior source from the airline told CNN on Tuesday.

    The revelation adds another detail to a picture that's been slowly emerging since the May 19 crash. But investigators have said it's still too soon to say what happened aboard the flight.

    The cockpit voice recorder captures sounds from the flight deck, including crew conversation, alarms and background noise that can help investigators understand what the flight crew was doing.

    Authorities haven't released a transcript orrevealed details about what can be heard in the recording. French investigators were working to repair the voice recorder's damaged memory chip.

    "What they are not saying, and they are not telling us or discussing, is what might have caused the fire?" CNN aviation correspondent Richard Quest said. "And that remains, of course, the absolute top question."

    "We now know there was smoke and there was fire onboard at the front of the aircraft. ... We don't know what caused it," Quest said. "And we don't know whether it was avionics-related, mechanical, or -- since it was by the toilet -- had it been done by somebody."

    They had enough time to try to put it out.

    I don't know of too many bombs that explode slow enough to allow you the time to consider a repair plan.

    Pretty amazing that in the old days - when everyone on the plane was smoking - there were very few fires on planes. Had to figure people were falling asleep left and right with butts in their hand.

    I'm sorry, all I can think right now, is just how right I am.

    Congrats me.

    No terrorism on flight 804, and Hillary wasn't indicted. Just like I said. :smile:

    The fire was started by a blast from Howard Stern's ass.

    Electrical, smoking, some sort of deflagration - too early to tell, let alone intent.
