[OUT Q= to the FBI.]

((The voice recorder, pulled from the depths of the Atlantic over the weekend is raising serious questions about the actions of the pilots in the cockpit of Egypt Air flight 990. Sources say the recorder has captured the voice of one of the pilots...believed to be the co-pilot...making some type of religious statement -- that could be a prayer -- just BEFORE the jet went into its fatal dive. But there's no agreement on what the prayer means...whether it was routine...or something more ominous. In any case, there is no proof...to this point...that the prayer had any connection to the crash that followed.
CBS News has also been told that after the jet began to dive...the voice tape recorded what sounds like the cockpit door opening...and a voice asking something to the effect of "what's going on?"
And it's not clear that both pilots were working to save the plane. Sources say, a voice...believed to be that of the captain...can be heard urging his partner to... quote "pull with me"..."pull with me" -- a command you'd expect to hear from a pilot trying to pull out of steep dive. Apparently there is no response, before the captain then says "cut the engines".
The flight data recorder tells us both engines were shut down just seconds before the jet lost electrical power...briefly climbed and then crashed.
With no signs of an airplane problem, the investigation could be headed to the FBI.))

Part of the challenge is that most of the cockpit conversation is in Arabic.

A brush fire in the Wildwood Road area of Roanoke County has some people evacuating their homes.
Authorities don't know how many acres are ablaze right now - but 10 to 15 acres were on fire about an hour ago.
Some residents of the Richland Hills community are leaving their homes.
But there are no mandatory evacuations underway and authorities say no homes are in immediate danger.
We have a news 7 crew on the scene and will bring you the latest information as soon as it's available.
Stay tuned.
