[i]CERNAN: At the completion of the purge and the closing of the valves, we still had a fire on the right-hand side. A fire out of the thrusters over there that was big enough or hot enough to show flames leaping up past the right-hand window and there were definite flames and I'd say this lasted for at least 60 seconds before it went out.
STAFFORD: Gene says, "Tom we got a fire out here." I said, "what are they going to do about it?"
YOUNG: It went out when we hit the water.
CERNAN: It went out long before we hit the water. It burned itself out probably after about a minute, or a minute and a half. But it was pretty impressive because the flames were leaping by the right-hand window.
YOUNG: We had a fire on Gemini 10 too.
CERNAN: We had a fire on 9 that lasted all the way to the water.[/i] [/B][/QUOTE]
