Fire at El Ingenio commercial centre in Vélez-Málaga

An electrical fire affecting two high voltage transformers and a generator at the El Ingenio commercial centre in Vélez-Málaga caused the precautionary evacuation of twelve cinemas due to concerns about smoke.

The incident occurred at 21:56 on Tuesday evening. Two fire crews from the Provincial Fire Brigade extinguished the fire and succeeded in preventing it from spreading to two adjacent shops.

The evacuations, due to thick smoke, were a precautionary measure and no-one was injured in the incident.
