Agreed. Fire onboard an airplane is one of those things you can never be to careful about. Good job.

Agreed. Good job.
If there is smoke or fire on board land ASAP!

The news article reported " There were at least four fire trucks and multiple personnel surrounding the plane on the tarmac Saturday afternoon."
One thing I always explain to people is that when you declare an emergency, there is only one level of response. There are no "sort of" emergencies.
The fire rescue crews roll all of their resources. If they are not needed, they then return to base.
It's far better to have them there, and not need them, than vice versa.

Absolutely true... I had a gear issues in Boston once and we needed to go-around run checklist and it came down.
We started the approach never having declared an emergency but they rolled all the trucks anyways and they followed us in all the way to the gate.
