A large fire broke out at the Injihiesa nougat and ice-cream factory in Xixona in Alicante shortly before 3pm on Wednesday, December 9. Fire fighters rushed to the scene, where large columns of black smoke could be seen billowing from the roof, and evacuated all of the workers as small explosions were heard inside the building.

A team of emergency workers from the Sant Vicent del Raspeig park and the Alicante towns of Ibi and Concentaina worked together to extinguish the blaze, while other businesses in the area were also evacuated.
