AROUND 60 people were evacuated from their homes for three hours due to a fire in the garage of a building on Calle Victoria Peña in Palma.
Two cars, several motorcycles and a boat were burned and a dozen other vehicles affected. The fire broke out shortly after midnight yesterday (21st September). Two residents were treated for smoke inhalation.
Once the fire was extinguished the building was checked for structural damage before the residents of the 20 apartments were allowed to return to their homes at around 3am, according to Palma Fire Department.
The cause of the fire is currently under investigation although indications point to it originating from one of the two burnt cars.
