    <P>Police investigating last year’s hangar fire at the Sabena Technics maintenance base in Brussels have concluded that there is no evidence of criminal activity, according to a source involved in settling the legal and insurance implications.</P> <P>Three customers’ Airbus A320s and a Belgian Air Force Lockheed C-130 Hercules were destroyed in the 5 May 2006 blaze at Brussels Airport.</P> <P>There has so far been no police statement on their investigation and no report from the aviation authorities, but ATI understands that the police believe the cause was almost certainly accidental and have been focusing on the possibility that vapour from cleaning fluid ignited inside one of the A320s while personnel were working on it.</P> <P>“It is not certain. But it seems that this fluid was being used in an enclosed space which you are not supposed to do,” says the source. “And there could have been a spark from anywhere.”</P> <P>The outcome of the police investigation is expected by partihttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Police-see-Sabena-Technics-fire-as-accidental-source-215807/
