NEARLY 700 students from the three private schools located in Palma’s Parc Bit had to be evacuated yesterday (June 4) after a fire started in a nearby property.
The students, ranging in age from babies to 18-year-olds, were transferred to a safe area within the facilities.
“We have activated the fire protocol ourselves and we have not been in danger at any point,” said a representative from one of the schools.
The fire, which had two focal points, ended up burning down a total of 3,000 square metres and four teams from the fire brigade as well as a light aircraft were involved in extinguishing it.
