KUWAIT CITY, Jan 25: Investigations conducted over the recent fire incident in Jabriya, which led to the death of an Egyptian woman and her three children, has revealed that the children were playing with lighters, which caused the fire.

According to sources from Kuwait Fire Service Directorate, the caretaker of the building heard the woman screaming for help. He immediately rushed to the apartment and tried to break down the front door. The woman had earlier locked the door and hid the keys in order to avoid her children from leaving the apartment; however, she could not find the keys at the time of the incident.

When the caretaker was unable to break down the front door, he quickly called the fire station. Sources indicated that firefighters found lighters in the living room, which ruled out any criminal aspect in the incident, adding that further investigations are ongoing to unravel more details about the incident. They revealed that the husband of the deceased woman has arrived back in Kuwait.
