The Boeing 737-800 was en route from Copenhagen (Denmark) to Paris-Orly (France) when, in Dutch airspace, the captain was informed by the purser that smoke was emerging from part of the rear galley. While the exact source was not known, the smoke was concentrated near the water heater and an oven. There was a strong smell of an electrical fire. A halon fire extinguisher was used at the point from which the smoke was emerging.

The report can be found in the Quarterly Report Aviation for the third quarter of 2016.
