BARCELONA House Fire Leaves One Resident Dead And A Police Officer Injured

The Generalitat Fire Brigade has reported the death of one resident in a fire on Thursday, April 29, at an address in the city at No19, Sant Antoni St, in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat.

They received a call at 18:33pm from a neighbour reporting a fire, to which eight fire crews were deployed, five SEM units – two basic and three advanced – three Mossos patrols, and members of the local L’Hospitalet police, who, on arrival at the location, discovered a fire burning in one of the first-floor apartments.

Once inside the property, the firefighters found the body of a man, while the local Urban Guard officers had to break down the door of an adjoining apartment and rescue an 86-year-old woman who had been overcome by the inhalation of smoke fumes, during which, one of the officers received injuries.

The woman was transferred to the Bellvitge Hospital, by the Emergency Medical System (EMS), while the fire crews worked to extinguish the blaze, which damaged the inside of the apartment where it had broken out, also causing some damage to wooden structure beams in the building, which are being inspected by the municipal architecture services.

Specialist officers from the Mossos d’Esquadra are investigating the cause of the fire, with Núria Marín, the mayor of L’Hospitalet, tweeting her condolences to the family of the victim, while also praising the work of the emergency services for, “the rapid intervention of an officer of the urban guard, who has been injured, but has saved a neighbour”, as reported by diariodealmeria.es.
