PETALING JAYA: A fire broke out at the Maharajalela monorail station on Thursday (Dec 24), though no one was hurt in the incident.

The Kuala Lumpur Fire and Rescue Department said the driver's cabin and one of the monorail coaches caught fire, but no passengers were injured.

The Department had received an emergency call at 7.27am, with a 21-men squad then dispatched to put out the fire.

Operation commander Mohamad Iqbal Zakaria said the fire involved one of the coaches of the monorail that was heading in the direction of KL Sentral from Maharajalela.

“All the passengers had safely escaped from the car before the firemen arrived. The fire was put out by 8.56am. The cause of the fire is being investigated, ” he said in a statement on Thursday (Dec 24).

RapidKL said that there were no train services from KL Sentral to Maharajalela although they were providing free shuttle van service to ferry passengers from KL Sentral – Tun Sambanthan – Maharajalela and vice versa.

They said that passengers may board a van with the number plate WSX 4385 from these stations.
