Sunday’s warm weather highlighted two of the occupational fire risks in Marbella
The first was a fire in the countryside just behind the ITV testing centre in San Pedro on Sunday afternoon. Fire crews and Civil Protection were quickly at the scene and the blaze was brought under control.
The second blaze gutted a speedboat just off the east side of Marbella. Rather than an onboard BBQ that got out of hand, it was later reported that the boat had been on a drug smuggling run. Unable to escape the police vessels, the crew torched the craft and were rescued by other boats nearby, who were unaware that the crew were smugglers.
It looks like it is going to be another long hot summer…
