Homeless woman injured in fire in La Linea

NATIONAL POLICE in La Linea de la Concepcion, Cadiz, arrested a 49-year-old man who set fire to a storeroom with his partner inside.

When police and firemen arrived on the scene to put out the fire beneath an apartment block, they found the woman inside. She sustained burns and was taken to hospital but was released after receiving treatment.

During the investigation, police found that she had been living in the storeroom, but were unable to find her as she had no known abode.

However, they were able to identify her partner, a gypsy with whom she fought frequently, including the day of the fire.

He was set free with charges of attempted manslaughter and causing damages.
