The Kuwait Fire accident occurred around 4.30 am in Kuwait at the Migrant workers' living building. The tragic fire accident took the lives of 45 Indians who went as an employee to Kuwait. Many worked under the NTBC company, which was partly an Indian Company. It is said that the company allocated the living space for the workers at the building.

The fire was ignited in the kitchen first floor and spread through the building. The people in the building during the fire accident died due to suffocation and smoke inhalation and some jumped from the building and lost their lives. People who were injured during the fire accident were taken to a Kuwait government hospital for treatment.
