Two National Police officers managed to somther a fire in an apartment in calle Conejito, Málaga, and rescue an 8 year old boy who was trapped inside.
It was the boy who called the Emergency Services and upon arrival at the scene, the two police officers grabbed the fire extinguishers from their car and headed up to the apartment. They found the apartment door open and the boy apparently suffering from smoke intoxication.
The father of the boy was in such a state that he was unable to tell the police officers if anyone else was stuck in the house so they had to go in and search. In doing so, they also suffered from smoke inhalation and later had to be treated by the ambulance crew.
The fire seems to have started on a couch in the living room.
