After extinguishing a house fire in a Malaga building, firefighters discovered the lifeless body of a 60-year-old male.


As reported by the Malaga City council on its official Twitter account, a tragic discovery was made on the evening of Friday, August 26, by firefighters in Malaga city who had turned out to tackle a house fire. Once the flames had been extinguished and the property ventilated of smoke, the lifeless body of a 60-year-old male was found.

Members of the Royal Fire Department of Malaga along with patrols from the city’s Local Police force were deployed to the blaze that occurred in a ground-floor property on Calle Catedratico Cristobal Cueva . Specifically, the incident was located in the Soliva district of the capital, just in front of the Teatinos University Campus.

Two full crews of firefighters were dispatched to the location, along with a turntable ladder, and a command unit. As reported by the brigade, several residents were treated for smoke inhalation as a result of the fire.

Another spectacular fire needed the intervention of Malaga’s excellent fire Department on Thursday, August 25. It broke out in commercial premises in the Malaga town of Ronda , which resulted in the residents of three buildings in the vicinity having to be evacuated as a precaution.

The blaze caused significant damage to one of the blocks, made up of 18 houses. It took four hours for the firefighting crews to stabilize the fire, eventually bringing it under control in the early hours of Friday morning.
