Alicante Attic Fire Threatens Building

Firefighters extinguished a fire in a third-floor Alicante apartment attic that had endangered the roof of a building in calle Castaños.

The fire service received notice at around 14:00 on Monday that the building was on fire, sending three crews to the scene.

The fire was located in the wooden attic, hampering extinction because of a thermal load wood ceiling, although the team managed to get the flames under control.

Early indications suggest that the fire could have been started by an electrical fault.
