Exclamation Fire in puerto pollensa (25/8/09)

Hi all,

Long time since Ive posted but i promise to get some new restaurant pics by winter.

However the reason for my post being that whilst on my balcony i saw a fire engine hurl around the corner and on towards the square.

I went to have a look and unfortunately an apartment above Bar Esperanza and Bar junior had a blazing fire in it, there was the Guardia Civil, Policia Local and three fire engines maintaining the building and the gathering crowds.

I have a short video:

YouTube - Fire in Puerto Pollensa

And tommorow morning I can take a photo so its more clearer.

I dont know if anyone was hurt but i hope not anyway

.........UPDATES....

Later on in the evening I was talking with the bar manager below and she was saying that all the people made it out alright

Over and out,

Sea Captain

Have heard from several sources that there were no casualties and the cause of the fire was, someone fell asleep on the sofa while smoking.

Exclamation Reason for fire

I can confirm Sparky's post, after talking with the Policia Local they did say the fire began when the lady fell asleep on the sofa and was smoking a cigarette at the same time.

She did make it out alright though

Below is a picture of the burnt out flat...



Adios for now

Sea Captain

Well done Sea Captain!

If this isn't an up to date news report with photos and video, what is?

Thanks again

I've been past that block 3 times today........and never even noticed the fire damage (how unobservant am I?!!!) Just about to take my boy to a party up that way, so I'll have a good old look! Thank goodness nobody was hurt. I'm sure that a child lives in that particular apartment as I often see her on the balcony and wave at her!
