Fireworks start blaze which destroys two homes in Mallorca
FIREWORKS starts a blaze which destroys two homes in Mallorca and 5,000 sqm of land scorched.
Four people were left homeless and it took firefighters 10 hours to extinguish the flames.
Their task was made worse by the fact the yard of one of the homes was filled with highly flammable junk.
The blaze started at around 1.50am, Sunday, on the Cami dels Pous de Buger, Sa Pobla. Fireworks from the party landed amongst a pile of junk in a neighbouring property, which provided fuel for the blaze.
Flames spread and caused severe damage to both properties. Police say they have interviewed a man in connection with the blaze, and charges may follow.
