Major fire extinguished in Mina Abdullah in Kuwait, arson suspected
Kuwait Fire Force (KFF) said four squads doused fires that erupted on docked boats in the Mina Abdullah area. The KFF said in a statement late on Sunday that the central operations department notified the teams in Mina Abdullah, Umm Al-Haiman and Al-Ahmadi to rush to the scene and extinguish the fires. Flames that spread over a wide area were contained by the firemen. Fortunately, nobody was injured and an investigation has been conducted.
Kuwait Fire Force said on Monday that an arsonist set fire to abandoned fiber-glass boats at the auto impounding garage in Mina Abdullah. According to the KFF, the blazes were caused by an arsonist setting off flammable substances at the municipal impounding garage. At the far end of the impounding garage, flames erupted between abandoned fiber-glass boats. The fire spread rapidly.
