Thick smoke raised fears but no injuries reported
A squad from the Torrevieja fire station tackled a fire that was reported at a home in Pilar de la Horadada, specifically in the neighbourhood of Los Segundas. According to the Local Police, it happened on Wednesday morning and they also sent several patrols there, as well as Civil Protection personnel.
Due to the large amount of smoke that was coming out of the building there were some tense moments, so the Local Police had to jump over the wall of the patio and go inside to check if there was anyone in. Fortunately the house was empty at the time.
The rapid intervention of the emergency services prevented the fire from spreading to other homes.
