The Amalia beach bar on Torre de Benagalbón's promenade was completely burned out after a fire broke out in the building in the early hours of last Saturday morning.

Guardia Civil officers are carrying out an investigation into the origin of the fire, which is thought to have been caused either by a lightning strike or an electrical fault.
