Fire fighters from Torrevieja had to work hard to put out a spectacular blaze that started in the garage of the house in the urbanisation Pinar de Campoverde, in Pilar de la Horadada.
The operation also involved members of the Local Police, the Guardia Civil and Civil Protection.
The flames destroyed furniture and possessions that were stored in the garage but fortunately no one was hurt. The quick action of the first response vehicle played a fundamental role in preventing the fire from spreading to neighbouring houses. So much so that by the time the fire brigade arrived the intensity of the flames had already dimmed.
