Emergency workers in Asturias located the bodies in a bedroom of the apartment where the fire broke out. They are now waiting for bodies to be removed.

The Head of the Central and Eastern Zone and eight firefighters from the Maliayo, Piloña and La Morgal parks came out. Once at the scene, the firefighters entered the house and located the bodies of the victims in a bedroom on the floor.

The troops brought the fire under control later in the morning.

The SEPA service reported the incident to the Local Police in Asturias and the Urgent Medical Care Service (SAMU), which activated the Primary Care medical team and an ambulance, and the Guardia Civil.

The news comes after a fire in Sevilla left one man dead and his parents injured, while a man in Almeria was also injured at another fire, according to firefighters.
