The aluminum weakened and bent outward during the fire. There was engine debris reported on the runway, there was flame outboard of the left engine,
with a left to right wind. It would have had to spread against the wind to get there if it started in the fuselage.
If it had been the center wing fuel tank that would have meant it was empty. If this aircraft didn't have an inerting system installed it would have
been filled with vapor and exploded.
