Realising there were still a number of people inside they went in, quickly opening windows and turning off the electricity as it looked like the origin of the fire was the kitchen extractor fan.

A search of the property led to the discovery of the woman and her small children, who had all inhaled a large amount of smoke.

They found one of the children in bed semi-conscious and unresponsive and rapidly got the child outside where the medical services managed to revive him.

All three were taken to Huercal-Overa hospital.
