AN 81-YEAR-OLD man and his 62-year-old wife were rescued after a fire started in their property located in Arboleas.
Upon their arrival, the fire brigades of Zurgena and Albanchez were told by neighbours that a couple was inside the property on fire, and that the man had a physical disability.
After requesting the presence of the Albox’ fire fighters, they entered the property crawling due to the great amount of smoke which also reduced the officers’ visibility.
The man could not walk and had to be picked up and carried out by a fire fighter and the woman was able to exit the property by herself.
Finally, they were able to extinguish the fire and the two victims were taken to the “La Inmaculada” hospital where they received treatment.
