A FIRE that broke out yesterday (February 12) at a seniors’ home in Benajarafe left an 88-year-old woman injured. She has been taken to the Axarquia Regional Hospital.

The rest of the 14 elderly residents have been relocated to other homes in Velez-Malaga and Torre del Mar in good health condition.

Authorities were alerted at around 5.30pm when a fire started inside a cabinet in the home’s kitchen.


The fire brigade was able to put out the fire in a few minutes, preventing damage to any other rooms.
