Regrettably, four of those hospitalized have since succumbed to their injuries, compounding the already heavy loss. The blaze erupted at approximately 4:30 a.m. in a densely populated workers’ residence, catching many occupants unaware in their sleep.

Swift action by the fire department brought the inferno under control, but not before it inflicted catastrophic damage.

Preliminary reports from Brigadier General Muhammad Al-Gharib, Director of Public Relations in the General Fire Force, confirmed the gravity of the situation, highlighting the significant number of fatalities and injuries caused by smoke inhalation.

In response to the emergency, multiple fire stations mobilized their resources, executing a coordinated evacuation effort that saved numerous lives. However, the toll on human life and health remains profound.

The Ministry of Health has mobilized its resources to provide comprehensive medical care to the injured, with 43 individuals receiving treatment across various hospitals in the region.

At Al-Adan Hospital, 21 cases are under intensive care, while Al-Farwaniyah Hospital is attending to 6 individuals. Al-Amiri Hospital and Mubarak Hospital have reported 1 and 11 cases, respectively, with Jaber Hospital managing 4 cases.

Medical teams are working tirelessly, offering immediate treatment and closely monitoring the injured to ensure they receive the best possible care.

Beyond medical assistance, specialized teams are providing crucial psychological and moral support to victims and their families, recognizing the trauma and grief caused by the disaster.

Meanwhile, high-ranking officials, including the First Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Defense, and Minister of Interior, Sheikh Fahd Al-Yousef, have personally visited the site to oversee operations and offer condolences.

In a decisive move, Sheikh Fahd Al-Yousef has ordered the detention of the company official and the building guard responsible for the premises.

The Criminal Department will conduct a thorough investigation to determine the causes and potential liabilities surrounding the fire, ensuring accountability for this tragic loss of life.

As the community of Al-Mangaf reels from this catastrophe, the nation mourns alongside them, grappling with the stark reminder of the risks faced by vulnerable populations in densely populated residential areas.

Authorities continue to work tirelessly to manage the aftermath and support those affected, emphasizing both immediate relief and long-term measures to prevent such disasters in the future.

This incident serves as a poignant call to action for enhanced safety measures and stricter enforcement of regulations to safeguard the lives and well-being of all residents, particularly those in labor camps and similar accommodations.

As investigations proceed and recovery efforts continue, the nation stands united in solidarity with the victims and their families, offering support and solace during this difficult time.
