KUWAIT: Firefighers battle a blaze reported in Naseem.

KUWAIT: A string
of fires were reported around Kuwait during the Eid Al-Fitr holiday. One of the
fires was reported in Naseem where a blaze broke out in a makeshift room and
six vehicles on Friday morning, Kuwait Fire Service Directorate (KFSD) said.

The room was used
to store tents in front of a house in Naseem, and the flames spread to the
vehicles parked next to it. The fire was put out and no injuries were reported.
In the meantime, seven vehicles were engulfed in a fire in Dhahr while parked
in a sandy open area. Mubarak Al-Kabeer and Qurain fire stations responded and
put out the fire.

Meanwhile, fire
broke out in the basement of a Khaitan building, prompting Farwaniya and Subhan
fire stations to respond. The six-storey building was evacuated and the fire
put out. The basement contained foam, paint and wood supplies, which helped
spread the flames. Separately, a power transformer caught fire in Fahaheel, and
firemen dealt with it.

In other news,
Jahra Occupational Fire Center responded to a fire on Salmi road, along with
Shaqaya and backup centers. The fire was in a 5,000-sq-m feed enclosure. The
fire was contained to keep it from spreading, and took firemen five hours to
put it out.
