327F.36 SCREEN EXHAUST FIRE CONTROLS. No locomotive or other rolling stock shall be operated unless it is equipped with proper deflector and screen exhaust fire controls and uses adequate devices to prevent the escape of blowing or burning materials or substances and is maintained in good working order to protect against the start and spread of fires along the right-of-way. A violation of this section shall, upon conviction, be subject to a schedule "one" penalty. The railroad corporation, and any officer, agent, lessee, or independent contractor found guilty of a violation of this section, upon conviction, shall be subject to a schedule "one" penalty. In the event a right-of-way fire can be attributed to faulty screen exhaust fire control equipment, a local fire department may collect reasonable hourly charges, not to exceed a total of two hundred fifty dollars for each call from the railroad corporation.
