ATC vs Pilot: Fire in cargo hold, trying to return to Narita or Haneda

2021 Jul 29 NCR 891 took off from Narita, in the climb to FL340, cargo fire alarm, and tried to explain to ATC declaring emergency requesting vectors to return to Narita or Haneda. Probably just me, but it seemed to take ATC several tries to realize what NAC891 was saying. And... Lithium batteries again.

[Oops, I still have trouble thinking of them as the National Cash Register company.]
