PIZARRA House Fire Leaves Six People Injured In Málaga
The 112 Andalucía Emergency service, attached to the Council of the Presidency, Public Administration and Interior of the Board, late on Saturday 10, deployed the Public Health Emergencies Company ambulance (EPES 061), along with the Pizarra Emergency Service and the Cártama Emergency Service, plus the Guardia Civil, the Local Police, and the Civil Protection unit, to a location in Pizarra, in the province of Málaga.
112 had received a call reporting a fire inside a home on Virgen de las Nieves street in the town of Zalea, in Pizarra, Málaga, where an elderly couple lived, but when the emergency services arrived on the scene, it was discovered that the fire had been extinguished by the neighbours.
As a result of the neighbours’ rescue action, the 061 health workers had to treat five men, aged 83, 51, 38, 28, and 21, who were very badly affected by smoke inhalation, and a 75-year-old woman had to be transferred to the burns unit in the Valle del Guadalhorce hospital, after she had suffered burns in the fire inside her house.
The Provincial Fire Brigade proceeded to inspect and ventilate the home, and has opened an investigation into the cause of the Pizarra house fire, as reported by juntadeandalucia.es.
