Construction On Fire


So I was in Kuwait City after fa6oor 6:15pm and there was this huge fire in one of the construction buildings there. The fire started on the 21st floor of this building and by the time I left it was spread to 5 level down with thick black smoke coming out of the building and I could hear small blasts. According to people there the fire started at 5:30pm and the fireman didn't arrive before 6PM. I just hope every one is safe....

This is from Souk Mubarkiya

I am at the site when I hear a blast

I am under the building with ashes on top of me!

I was 100m far from the accident site..

Enshallah no one got hurt, and you Mr. walking around with a death wish and camera, take care of yourself, I know how tempting it is to go and watch, did that my self before, but it�s pretty dangerous, and the fire department only half an hour?! �3al6aneyn they should�ve let the force of nature do the job for them!!

amazing pics! do you know what caused the fire?

Amu said...

bb_q8: thanks :) The cause is stil unknown...But the worse part is that our firefighter didnt do anything to let the fire off. I guess they didnt have enough equipments to tackle such an incident!
