This is what I just read from http://news.sina.com.cn/c/2004-05-10/13283194504.shtml.
Here is briefly what happened:
A rear left tire on a China Southern Airline MD-82 with over 100 passengers on board caught fire on takeoff run at around 7PM Sunday evening at Pudong International Airport, Shanghai, China. The captain made a sharp right exit and aborted early; the fire was put out about 5 minutes later after fire engines arrived. All crew and passenger were evacuated without injuries. Investigators suspect that frictions due to the locked-up tire caused overheating and eventually lighted it up. The MD-82 involved was still bearing the China Northern Air livery.
