FIRE broke out in Carboneras port late on New Year’s Eve, affecting four moored boats.

Two of the boats sank, while two were burnt out but no-one as injured in the blaze, which produced only material damage, the Poniente fire brigade revealed afterwards.

Speaking after the fire was extinguished, a Proteccion Civil spokesman explained that thanks to cooperation from the many boat-owners who helped to move other pleasure craft, the fire did not spread and develop into “a real disaster.”
