The Cessna 172S aircraft was taxiing for take-off when the brake and wheel of the right landing gear leg overheated and subsequently ignited. The passengers and the pilot got out of the plane without injury. The fire was extinguished.

The cause of the serious incident was the inconsistent performance of the prescribed actions before take-off by the pilot, which resulted in incomplete release of the aircraft's parking brake, which led to overheating of the brakes and a fire during taxiing.
