  • Flames broke out in the early hours of Tuesday morning but the damage didn't stop the Naô Pool beach club opening the next day

The National Police have launched an investigation into a potential arson attack after a fire broke out at the Naô Pool beach club in Nueva Andalucía, managed by the son of Marbella businesswoman Olivia Valère, in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The damage only affected part of the exterior of the club which was able to open the next day, albeit two hours later than planned, as its essential services were not affected.

At the same time as the fire broke out, firefighters in Marbella also had to respond to reports of three cars ablaze in the Bello Horizonte residential development.

Early signs suggest that the fire at the beach club could have been intentional and a link to the vehicles has not yet been ruled out.
