KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia’s state energy firm Petronas said on Monday that a fire on the Sabah-Sarawak Gas Pipeline in East Malaysia had been controlled.

The fire has been brought under control and Petronas “is closely monitoring the situation”, the company said in a statement.

A fire and rescue department official earlier reported that an explosion had taken place the 500-kilometre long pipeline on Sunday.
