The oven circuit breaker was tripped and the galley and utility busses shut down, the smoke ceased without necessity to discharge fire agents. The aircraft continued to Puerto Plata for a safe landing.

The Canadian TSB reported that maintenance identified after landing that the source of the smoke had been limited to the oven, the oven was isolated from the power supply and the aircraft departed for the return flight. The oven is being sent to the manufacturer for further analysis.
