Carry out the following in case of a brake fire in an F27:

- Stop the aircrat into the wind, if possible.

- Inform ATC.

- Use the Opposite Brake (one that is not on fire) and maintain directional control with nose wheel steering (e.g. using left brake will require the steering to be turned towards right).

- Set Engine RPM to 10,000 (on the affected side for cooling).

- If fire continues, feather the engine on the unaffected side.

- Get the fire tender in position.

- Feather the engine on the affected side.

- Evacuate (captain last one to leave).
