This was an absolutely incredible experience. I was there, working with the Kuwaiti EPA. It was both extremely sad, and professionally exhilarating, because of the increase rate of progress in putting out the fires as international crews shared their expertise.
The hotel I was staying at in Kuwait city had at least one room wasn’t usable because it had been hit by an artillery shell. We looked out on another high rise that had all of the upper floors burned. The electronics bazaar in town had been burned out.
The fire crews who were staying there would get back to the hotel around 9:pm. They would spend two hours in the shower getting most of the oil washed off, and then dinner was served at 11:00 pm. They would get up early in the morning and then do it again.
I didn’t bring a camera, because I knew I would have to be concentrating on the work, but the images will be burned into my mind forever.
