As the aircraft descended towards its destination, the flight crew received a number of SMOKE warnings relating to the aft baggage compartment; there were no signs of smoke or fumes in the passenger or crew compartments. The crew brought the aircraft to a stop on the runway after landing and all occupants vacated the aircraft expeditiously. There was no evidence of fire or smoke damage, but an examination of components in the fire detection system revealed corrosion on a smoke detector connection pin. This was identified as the probable cause of the smoke warnings.
