Translation...

Here goes....haven't done this for some time:
(Try to be in context when you read them)

Bukit Mertajam - A 22 class locomotive driver of the Malayan Railways Limited (Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad - KTMB) managed to save his life, after a fire broke out in the locomotive's engine room when it caught fire at Penanti, near here yesterday.

The incident happened at around 2 am when the locomotive was hauling a 'container train' en route from Prai to Padang Besar, Bukit Kayu Hitam.

Bukit Mertajam Fire Station's Duty Officer Rohana Mustafa said, they received a call at 2.01 am and 8 firemen arrived at the scene at 2.20 am in a fire engine.
The firemen used 8 lengths of connected hose-reels attached to the fire engine as the locomotive was inaccessible and located a distance away.

Rohana also said, the fire was put under control at about 2.50 am and it was totally put off at 5 am. The Fire Dept had to detach the locomotive away to prevent fire from spreading and destroy its 'container cargo'.
It was a challenging task for the firemen as that location was full of "wires".

At this point of time, the fire department has not establish the cause of fire and the cost of damage.

KTMB's Corporate Communications Executive Shahriza Embi when contacted in Kuala Lumpur said, the locomotive involved has "2 heads" and the fire broke out in the engine room 'in the rear'.

Shahriza said, the locomotive driver was operating in the leading end. He stopped the train after realizing that fire had broke out in the locomotive rear compartment.

Shahriza also said, the damaged locomotive was separated and sent to Penanti Station where the fire was eventually put off.

Electrical fires

Not related to this particular news article, electrical fires are normally caused by a short-circuit in the wiring layout. As electric cables aged, the insulation and the conductor core gets oxidized....

Vibrations and movements will result to a short-circuit (live wire in contact with the neutral or earth) ...this will result to overheating, arcing and eventually electrical sparks....

Combined with dried combustible materials like oil or grease....then you'll get disaster.

New locomotives are equipped with high-end and sensitive circuit breakers monitored by computers. Many has on-board smoke or heat detectors placed within specific compartments in the engine room that will monitor and trigger the alarms.
