Information:

A retarder brake on a Toro haul truck caught fire whilst being driven up a mine decline. Drillers following behind noticed sparks coming out from under the haul truck and notified the operator. The operator stopped the haul truck, reversed into the nearest stockpile area and switched off the truck isolator. The operator then grabbed the fire extinguisher and proceeded, with the assistance of the drillers, to exlinguish the fire.

No persons were injured in the incident and only minor truck damage occurred. However any fire underground poses a serious risk to health and safety.
