TWO firefighters sustained minor injuries on Wednesday (April 1) while extinguishing a fire in the Costa Tropical town Otivar.
The Granada fire brigade said that they were alerted at around 11.30pm on Wednesday of a fire in the area of Carretera de la Cabra. Two fire engines attended the scene with eight firefighters aboard.
The area affected by the fire covered around one hectare although, according to the fire brigade, the extinguishing operations became especially complicated, ending up with injuries to two officers.
One of them suffered a knee injury and the other one had to be treated for a torn ligament.
The fire was extinguished at around 2am, and the reasons behind it are still unknown.
