Information:

Methane-enriched mine air passed over two diesel explosion-protected load haul dump (LHD) vehicles which were operating in a return airway during a longwall relocation. The methane caused both diesel engines to increase in speed and rev in excess of maximum engine speed. Both diesel engines suffered major internal damage. No one was injured as a result of the incident.
