Fire engine crashes into freight train at Haurgeulis level crossing

The accident between a fire engine and a goods train occurred at the Haurgeulis level crossing, Indramayu Regency, West Java. Although there were no casualties, the fire engine was badly damaged and train travel was hampered.

The incident took place on Tuesday (2/7/2024) at 01.55 at Kilometer 138+2/3 upstream of Haurgeulis Station. The fire engine with license plate number E 9919 P belonging to the Indramayu Regency Government, driven by Warsito, stopped in the middle of the crossing when the goods train number 2526 connecting Kampung Bandan-Kalimas passed at high speed.

“Thank God there were no fatalities because the five members or personnel from the fire brigade who were going to carry out the firefighting in Mekarwaru were all safe, they were able to get out of the vehicle,” said Head of Indramayu Satpol PP and Damkar Teguh Budiarso.

According to Teguh, the fire engine was going to extinguish a fire in Mekarwaru Village, Gantar District. When passing through a level crossing, the car was blocked by a motorbike rickshaw which could not move, so the vehicle could not move forward and the engine stopped.

PT KAI Operations Area 3 Cirebon Public Relations Manager Rokhmad Makin Zainul said that his party immediately dispatched officers after the accident occurred. Five minutes after the incident, officers arrived at the location and checked the track and locomotive. “There was damage to the locomotive facilities, namely the right locomotive fog light was broken and the rear cab lock ladder was bent,” said Zainul.

The train involved in the accident was delayed 27 minutes and the other train was delayed about 35 minutes. At 05.16, a tow truck arrived to evacuate the fire engine so that at 05.52 the train line was declared sterile.

Zainul reminded motorists to always prioritize train travel when at level crossings, in accordance with Article 124 of Law Number 23 of 2007 concerning Railways and Law No. 22/2009 concerning Road Traffic and Transportation.

“Road users, including fire brigades and ambulances, must prioritize train travel because trains have their own track and cannot stop suddenly,” said Zainul. He emphasized the importance of being careful at level crossings to prevent fatal accidents.

Transportation observer from Soegijapranata University Semarang, Djoko Setijowarno, assesses that accidents at level crossings are prone to occur. Apart from drivers crossing barred crossings, not all train crossings are guarded by officers. In the Daop 3 Cirebon area, there are 164 level crossings recorded, 92 of which are guarded by officers and residents, while the other 72 are unguarded.

PT KAI recorded 2,022 accidents at level crossings throughout Indonesia from 2018 to mid-February 2024, with 86 percent or 1,731 accidents occurring at unguarded crossings. The central and regional governments are expected to close level crossings that are prone to accidents or provide overpasses, while road users must be alert and stop when the train signal sounds or the train door latch closes.

Firefighters from the Pati Satpol PP were immediately deployed to the location after receiving the report. Two fire engines were deployed to extinguish the blaze. After two hours of extinguishing process, the fire was successfully contained.

From the scene of the incident, you could see the wreckage of 1 unit of the Pertalite pump machine at the gas station destroyed and burned. Apart from that, a Daihatsu Espass minibus was also destroyed by fire. One goat was also found roasted to death in the burning minibus.

Head of the Pati Civil Service Police Unit (Satpol PP), Sugiyono, confirmed that the fire occurred at around 04.30 WIB. His party immediately deployed three firefighters from the post and Juwana, and were assisted by firefighters from the Trangkil Sugar Factory, TNI, Polri and the local community.

Fire Hits Kemang Main Market, Dozens of Stalls and Losses Burned

A major fire hit the Kemang Main Market, Bogor City, West Java, on Monday (1/7/2024) afternoon, burning dozens of stalls and stalls in the city’s largest traditional market. There were no fatalities or injuries in this incident.

“Thank God, there were no victims. As for the handling, we have localized everything safely,” said the Head of the Yasmin Post Fire Department, Mochammad Royani, Monday evening.

According to Royani, the fire destroyed around 60 kiosks and stalls in Blocks C15 and C16. The kiosks and stalls that burned were stalls selling spices, fruit and vegetables.

The exact cause of the fire is still unknown. However, preliminary allegations state that the fire was triggered by an LPG gas leak at a rice stall. “Initially it was from a gas stove, when the stove was turned on it suddenly shot out a big fire. It was suspected that the LPG gas was leaking,” explained Royani.

The large number of flammable materials at the Kemang Main Market caused the fire to quickly grow and consume the stalls of the surrounding traders. This condition makes the fire difficult to extinguish.

A fire brigade team was immediately dispatched to the location to handle the situation. Even though the fire was successfully controlled, dozens of stalls and stalls were already burned down, leaving significant losses for traders.

This fire is a warning for all parties to always be alert to the potential for fire, especially in places that are vulnerable and have lots of flammable materials. Kiosk and stall owners are expected to always check the safety of their gas equipment and installations to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.
