There is no doubt that bleed air leaks cause a lot of fire
warnings.  Bleed air leaks can also cause a lot of damage.  One
would be in error to try to come up with ONE correct answer for
all situations here.  The pilot must determine how badly the
power from that engine is needed.  I would think you would
normally want to shut it down.  Obviously, SOMETHING isn't right.
A fire, even if it went out wasn't caused by nothing.  However
terrain, the condition of other engines (shut down?), etc, may
require some temporary modification of that resolution.
