KUWAIT: Kuwait Fire Force announced on Saturday that five of its teams controlled a fire at Amghara scrapyard without any human casualties, with only material losses. “A report was received on Friday evening at the central operations department stating that a warehouse was on fire at Amghara scrapyard. The department immediately directed five fire brigades to the site of the incident,” KFF’s public relations and media department said.
“Upon the arrival of the teams, it was found the fire had started in the warehouse that contained flammable goods, oils, wood and building materials spread over an area of approximately 2,000 square meters. The fire was dealt with, contained and controlled and did not spread to neighboring shops and stores,” it added.
KFF called on owners of factories, warehouses, industrial plots and commercial buildings to apply safety and fire prevention requirements as well as remove obstacles from external corridors so that fire brigades can access, fight and control fires easily. —KUNA
