FIVE people were injured in Velez-Malaga on Sunday (November 15) when a woman tried to commit suicide by setting fire to her flat.

The alert went up at 4.10pm and Local and National Police officers, fire fighters and ambulance teams were sent to the block of 16 flats, all of which had to be evacuated.

The woman, who later admitted that she had lit the fire on purpose, had to be taken to Axarquia hospital for her burns to be treated, as did a National Police officer, and another three Local Police officers required medical attention after inhaling large amounts of smoke.


Although residents from the other flats were allowed home after the fire was put out, architects will have to check for structural damage before the woman is allowed home.
