Residents in La Loma and Pueblo Don Silvero in Mijas were evacuated from their homes as a precaution this Thursday (7 March) after a fire broke out in nearby industrial units.

Three warehouses were destroyed in the blaze, one belonging to the Zoco Home furniture store, another containing pool products and a third that was unused.

According to the furniture firm, the eight members of staff working on Thursday morning reported smelling smoke coming from outside the premises. They were able to leave unhurt before the blaze reached their store.

The dense plume of black smoke was visible from all over the Mijas and Fuengirola areas, with the emergency services receiving more than 70 calls within minutes of the fire breaking out at around 12.30pm.

Mijas firefighters and Local Police officers were at the scene, as well as fire crews from other stations on the Costa del Sol and members of the Junta’s Infoca wildfire brigade. The rain that fell today aided the firefighting operation and authorities have reported that the fire has been controlled.

Local residents have now been allowed back to their homes.

No injuries were reported and an investigation into the cause of the fire is under way
