Several Flights Delayed Due To Fire At LCCT - malaysiakini

SEPANG, Jan 9 -- A small fire at a store room of a shop at the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) here affected operations at the terminal and caused several flights to be delayed.

Malaysia Airport Berhad (MAB) general manager Datuk Azmi Murad said the fire broke out at about 11 am due to a minor accident in the store room, which was undergoing renovation at the terminal.

He said the situation was brought under control and operations, including the passenger check-in counters, were able to resume as normal at 12.30pm.

"There was no casualty or loss of life reported in the incident," he told reporters after accompanying Syrian Prime Minister Mohammad Naji Otri on a visit to the KL International Airport here today.

He said the fire caused the building to be engulfed in thick smoke and for public safety and to prevent any untoward incidents, passengers and workers in the terminal were asked to vacate the building.

Azmi said the incident also caused several incoming and outgoing flights to be delayed.

Meanwhile, Sepang district police chief Supt Zahedi Ayob, when contacted, confirmed the incident and said the fire brought under control in 15 minutes.

"It is learnt that a short-circuit occurred when a worker was said to have wrongly cut a wire, causing a fire to happen," he added.

Three fire engines from the Fire and Rescue station at the KLIA and another by MAB rushed to the scene when alerted of the fire.
