SilkAir flight SLK112, an Airbus A319, was landing at Solo City-Adi Sumarmo Airport (SOC/WARQ) when the controller observed smoke on the left main landing gear and informed the pilot.
The controller communicated in unclear English.
The communication was assisted by the pilot of another aircraft by translating to and from Indonesian and English. For five minutes the pilot repeatedly asked the Tower controller for more information to find out whether there was smoke and/or fire. At 0204 UTC, the controller radioed there was fire and the pilot made decision to conduct passenger emergency evacuation between the taxiway Bravo and apron.
The passengers disembarked using emergency slides and one of the passengers had a minor injury.

The brake assembly number 2 was replaced at the night stop before departed to Solo. After the incident there was no damage or sign of fire on the wheel and brake assembly number 2.

Uncertain identification combined with ineffective communication by the controller caused the pilot to make the emergency decision.
