An in-flight fire had erupted following the uncontained failure of the no. 4 engine. This forced the crew to carry out an emergency descent. At 20:43 at an altitude of 800 -1000 m the fire was extinguished. The captain decided to head to Kishinev for an emergency landing. Kishinev was 80 km away at that time. Meanwhile, hydraulic pressure dropped. At 20:49, at a distance of 55 km from the airport and at an altitude of 720-730 m, the no. propeller could no longer be feathered.
