A fire that gutted 70 public transportation buses in Ardiya was deliberately started, according to preliminary investigations, a senior official said. The lack of safety and security procedures at the location used by the Kuwait Public Transportation Company were contributing factors in the event, said Maj Gen Yousuf Al-Ansari, General Director of the Kuwait Fire Services Directorate.

Meanwhile, sources with knowledge of police investigations revealed that a teenager loaded a jerry can with fuel from a nearby gas station, then entered the bus garage after cutting the wires of the fence. The youth then poured petrol on the busses, set them on fire for unknown reasons and escaped, said the sources who spoke to Al-Qabas on the condition of anonymity. The sources added that the suspect is expected to be identified and arrested ‘very soon’.
