US official: No evidence of bomb in Dubai crash

A U.S. official familiar with the investigation of a cargo jet crash near Dubai in September says there is no evidence it was caused by a bomb.
The official was not authorized to speak publicly about the investigation and asked not to be named. This official said investigators found no "pressure signature" indicative of an explosion on the Boeing 747-400's flight data recorder. Nor was there the sound of an explosion on the plane's voice recorder.
The National Transportation Safety Board is assisting United Arab Emirates authorities with the crash investigation. The recorders were sent to Washington shortly after the accident to download the data in the board's laboratory.
Investigators haven't determined what caused the fire aboard the plane.
