From the aviation sites; Rule #1 for a fire or fire warning in a helicopter- land IMMEDIATELY!

Most medical flights take place between 500 and 1000 feet. Looks like you have 30 to 40 seconds to get down on a road or parking lot. Engine/fuel fires in a helicopter are right next to the tail boom attachment.
