A five axle All Terrain caught fire while travelling on the road last
week in Tyab, near Mornington, Victoria Australia. It had just crossed a
rail track when the incident occured.
The fire was blamed on a faulty hose, with the fire starting in the
engine compartment behind the cab and spreading to the superstructure.
Train services in the area were suspended because of a fuel and
hydraulic oil spill close to the tracks.
The crane was severely damaged as was the road surface. The crane was
recovered the same day by Membrey’s Transport & Crane Hire.
