A fireman takes a break while battling a blaze in Mahboula

KUWAIT: Two vehicles in Mahboula were set ablaze Friday evening, as Mangaf and Fahaheel fire stations responded. The vehicles were found under a shade, also used as a store for metal equipment and paperwork, which helped cause the flames to spread to nearby trees. The fire was put out promptly.

Meanwhile, a fire in an Amghara store was put out by occupational and Tahreer fire stations, and was kept from spreading to nearby places. No injuries were reported in either incident. Investigations were opened to reveal the causes of the two fires.

Policeman injured

In other news, a citizen stabbed a policeman during an argument that ensued after he pulled him over for a traffic violation. Backup was called in and the citizen was taken to concerned authorities, while the policeman was taken to hospital.

Separately, Abdullah Al-Mubarak detectives arrested four Egyptian nationals, two of whom work for Abdullah Al-Mubarak Co-operative Society, on accusations of stealing goods from the store. A society member had doubts about vehicles that do not belong to the society and were parked outside, so he told detectives and the four were arrested.
