Moments before being evacuated after the aircraft had come to a stop on runway 34L, Reason for this was a cargo hold fire message on the EICAS (which actually turned out to be a small fire) 10 minutes after departure, the aircraft declared MAYDAY and returned for landing without dumping fuel , as the captain could smell somthing burning and wanted to land ASAP. the aircraft is now at qantas maintanance undergoing structural checks after the heavy landing.
