House fires in Orihuela Costa and Raiguero de Bonanza

Fire fighters were called out to two house fires in Orihuela on Sunday.

The first started in the kitchen of a detached house in Raiguero de Bonanza at about 2:45pm and the occupants got out of the building quickly. Two vehicles from  the Orihuela fire station and Local Police officers responded.

The fire fighters had difficulty getting into the house as it is on a narrow street which the fire engine could not access so they had to use a long hose. The fire destroyed the kitchen furniture and smoke damaged the rest of the house.

The other incident was in a home in Los Balcones in Orihuela Costa. The fire started in the living room when the tenants, a married couple and their baby, were out. When they got home they found that part of the lounge was burning.

Three vehicles from Torrevieja fire station went there and put out the flames in about an hour.
