Sounds like the now famous sticky brake issue which afflicts the 29k, generates a horrible burning carbon smell and lots of smoke as the brake disks inside the bogie heat up to well beyond normal.

A real fire would result in a trigger for the emergency extinguishers without driver intervention

A refund claim is appropriate in this case
