At least 35 people were killed, and 15 others sustained injuries when a fire broke out in a residential building in Kuwait City of Mangaf on Wednesday morning, BBC reported.

A video shared on social media showed flames engulfing the lower part of the building and a plume of thick and black smoke billowing from the lower part of the building

The fire which broke out at 6 pm (local time), has now been taken under control, according to the interior ministry.

A senior police officer told state TV that there were a “large number” of people in the building when the fire broke out.

Many of the casualties are said to be foreign workers who lived there, according to the local media outlets.
