Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

New Building Burning in Downtown Kuwait

This is what I saw when I arrived at 7:40pm September 29th 2007. The top few floors of what seems to be a new building are burning pretty badly. There is a helicopter circling the location, probably finding a quick route for ground support. However, I couldn’t find anything about it anywhere in the radio, or TV for that matter. All I could think about was how the owner the building must feel. Allah ekon fe 3ona, o enshalla no one got hurt!

Location: Murgab, Kuwait

    I was there at 6:15pm…I got few pics on my blog too…The fire was really bad. But I didnt see the fire fighters doing much. I guess the fire is out of their control or they dont have the required equipments to handle such a case…

    Great live photage! How come there’s no live commenting, though? Woulda’ been redundant? Ok, point taken.

    I don’t think anyone got hurt but *crosses fingers just in case*

    Fayoora,
    Yeah, they blocked the roads! It looks very dangerous!

    Amu,
    You have some great shots there, I don’t even know how they put it out later on!

    shoosha,
    eh, I hope so!

    Laialy,
    Yeah! The fire is huge btw.. and you can see it from the 1st ring road!

    chikapappi,
    Ameen.

    Vixen,
    I hope so too!

    Phoenix,
    I wouldn’t know, but Kuwaiti roads aren’t very friendly for emergencies(especially the ones downtown).

    Navy Girl,
    Enshalla.

    Very.Q8ya,
    It is in that area, but probably on the other side of the street. It is a new building, ma khalesat, lel7en ga3d yabnonha!

    Drunk’n'Gorgeous,
    I was about to do that, I was outside the coffee shop I usually hang out at, I just decided to leave it be and let the news ppl take care of it:p I hope no one got hurt too. It looked very vicious.

    I had no clue that even happened and nobody even mentioned it in the papers. Really odd to say the least. There is insurance for that reason… but we shall see if they pay out but curious to reason why things caught on fire.

  13. N. |

    Yeah, I’ll try to find the article and see what is it all about. Sabotage? Accident? Who knows!

  14. AlleyCat |

    It was actually on the news last night on Al-rai (approx 12midnite). Apparently its the 3rd almost completed building to ‘mysterioualy catch fire’ in the past 3 months… hmm anyone suspect anything? ;p

  15. N. |

    Hey Alley! I wasn’t aware of that! “mystery” ha.. I’d like to know what “mystery” this is all about! Are the burnt new buildings all from the same contractor? ooooh! Sabotage? Could be eh? Or bad construction and power cabling. OR maybe someone forgot to put their cigarette out. Either way, further investigation is needed for sure!
