A large fire broke out in an aluminum plant in the city of Dos Hermanas, about 12 km from the center of Seville, in southwestern Spain.
Five firefighters were called to the plant and for hours worked at the scene to contain the blaze.
Local media report that the fire broke out last Thursday, shortly after 7:00 p.m. This is a warehouse, one of the eight warehouses, belonging to the aluminum plant “Alueuropa SA”. The fire caused a very thick and black smoke, following the flammable materials that were in place, which was visible from a great distance. As a result of the fire, the building’s ceiling collapsed and huge explosions were heard that shook the city.
Deputy Mayor Antonio Moran Sanchez, who arrived at the scene of the fire in the early hours of the morning, said that “the fire is currently under control. The circumstances of the outbreak are not yet known but fortunately there were no casualties. Heavy damage was done to the scene.”
Local police have launched an investigation into the circumstances.
