Initial Report and findings on a small fire which occurred on a haul truck.
Early guidance on possible contributing factors includes:
- Modifications to electrics in the control panel;
- OEM datalogger not secured adequately – leading to heating:, and
- Effective use of fire extinguisher limits escalation of the incident.
The importance of controlling modifications – even those involving OEM provided devices is worth noting and highlighting.
