I noted 1 incident of cargo fire out of 36 total incidents. Even assuming that cargo fire was caused by lipos (unwarranted assumption but let us go with it), the probability of lipo related incident is then 2.7%.

It is likely that United wasn't making enough $ off these shipments. I doubt safety of passengers was an issue.
