Fire-fighters were called to a villa in the Torrevieja suburb of La Siesta on Wednesday morning when a fire broke out. The property itself was all but destroyed by the blaze with another adjacent property also affected. The alarm was raised just after ten in the morning when neighbours noticed flames and a large volume of smoke bursting from the property. When units arrived, the property was thankfully found to be empty.
The property itself suffered devastating damage while the neighbouring property is said to have been smoke damaged. Guardia Civil and Local Police attended the scene but the causes of the fire are not yet clear.
The investigation continues.
