KUWAIT: A fire broke out in a citizen’s house in Abdullah Al-Mubarak and residents were trapped by the flames, said Kuwait Fire Service Directorate’s (KFSD) public relations and media department. Firemen from Jleeb and Ardhiya were immediately dispatched to the scene, where they found the fire was on the ground floor, KFSD said, adding that family members, who were rescued without casualties, were trapped on the second floor. The fire was put out in record time to prevent it from spreading. Further investigation is in progress to determine the cause of the fire.
The Relations and Security Information Department at the Interior Ministry said reports in a local paper and social media about the transfer of an officer at the airport because he implemented the law is totally untrue. It said investigations confirmed the officer made a mistake in carrying out security procedures at the airport, besides being unprofessional in dealing with those who were present. He also gave orders to let some passengers enter without being checked. The statement said the officer was sent for investigations, then he was transferred to another department at the airport.
