The ATSB report of 03 December 2015 (updated 10 December 2015) together refer to evidence of a significant electrical failure on MH370 between 18:03 & 18:25 UTC.

A fire in the MEC of a United Airlines Boeing 777 on the ramp at Heathrow in February 2007 may provide some insight into what caused hypoxic flight suspected by the ATSB. In the Heathrow event it was noted by ramp personnel that smoke was escaping from the MEC vent.

Since the Boeing 777 when flying at 35,000 ft would use differential pressure to ventilate smoke from the MEC, does fire in the MEC explain both loss of communications and hypoxia?
