When the aircraft was 80 km out of Mashhad and at FL230, suddenly the autopilot disengaged and there were warnings indicating engine no. 4 was on fire. The plane yawed to starboard. The fire spread to the wing and eventually the no. 4 engine fell off.
A safe emergency landing was made at Mashhad, 24 minutes later. The plane continued to burn for another 16 minutes on the tarmac, before the flames were finally put out.
