Default FDX 17 on 2/25/10

Does anybody here have any info on what happened to this flight? I see on Flightaware that it returned to the field. It was surrounded by fire trucks, including a ladder truck from AFD.

But of course I understand if you cant say anything. I figured I would ask anyway.

Doesn't everyone track all FedEx flights on Flight Aware on their days off, or is it just me? What else is there to do when your not on APC?

Looked like a false cargo fire indication according to the write-up.

That would explain all the fire trucks. Thanks for the info.
