Mi­nor fire ex­tin­guished in Shuaiba Re­fin­ery: KNPC

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

A fire de­scribed as ‘mi­nor’ broke out in the Crude Oil Unit in Shuaiba Re­fin­ery on Fri­day but it was rapidly ex­tin­guished with­out any ca­su­al­ties, Kuwait Na­tional Petroleum Com­pany said. The fire broke out due to a mal­func­tion in one of the unit’s pumps which caught the blaze, KNPC act­ing spokesman Ali Ab­dul­lah told KUNA. The fire was put out in record time and no one was hurt, he added. Ab­dul­lah said the af­fected pump would be sealed in the com­ing hours and the Crude Oil Unit would be re-op­er­ated as soon as pos­si­ble.

KUWAIT: A fire broke at an apart­ment lo­cated in the Ar­beed apart­ment build­ings in Rega’ie yes­ter­day. Fire­fight­ers man­aged to put the blaze un­der con­trol be­fore it could spread to other apart­ments. Three fire­men were in­jured and were treated at the scene.
