If fuel was dumped over nothern Sydney (a little bizarre given that a right turn would have put the plane over the Pacific within a minute or two) then the fire must have broken out very soon after departure.

EDIT:

The route map below suggests to me the dump more likely took place over water: smh.com.au/travel/travel-inc … 1i195.html
