They have them in the engines, but depending on the cause of the fire it might not be able to put it out. Engine fires are pretty rare too. If the
fire started somewhere else, they wouldn't have anyway to put it out. And it's entirely possible the fire started during the takeoff roll.
Guam Public Affairs is reporting it as a crash, so I'm assuming that they at least got airborne and then came down on the ramp, from fairly low
altitude, and skidded across the ramp.
