Malaga firefighters have tackled a large blaze at an electric scooter warehouse in the city this Wednesday evening, 1 June. A tall column of dense, black smoke rising from the scene provoked a barrage of calls to the 112 emergency services control room.

The alarm was raised at about 6.35pm, when it was reported that the commercial premises in Almáchar street were ablaze.

Local and National Police, as well as firefighters, were mobilised. However, no medical personnel travelled to the area, since the warehouse was not open to the public and indications suggest that no personal injuries were suffered.

The fast action of the fire brigade stopped the blaze spreading to neighbouring industrial units and by 7.45pm the incident was declared controlled.
