I just stumbled upon a reference to this while looking up something
completely different.  The aircraft was indeed a '10, the second
DC-10-40 built to be precise.  It served Northwest for over ten years
as N142US and was sold to American Trans Air 6 Jul 1984; it burned at
O'Hare on 8 Oct 1986.  Still haven't seen any mention of the cause of
the fire.
