Almuñécar firemen had to rescue an injured driver in an accident on the Camino de Gelibra leading to Cortijo de Turillas.
Just after 20.00h the 112 emergency service was alerted to the accident, which involved a van leaving the road. The Policía Local and Protección Civil were sent to rescue the driver, who was trapped in the stricken vehicle.
He was transferred to the Almuñécar Centro de Salud but fortunately his injuries were not serious.
But that was not the only call out that the Almuñécar emergency services received yesterday evening, because the fire service was called out to put out a grass fire on a building plot along Camino del Serrallo, at the end of Calle de Los Almendros, (Behind the Antigua Sexi Secondary School).
It took them almost an hour to control and extinguish the fire, even though it only affected around 150 sq/m – it was, however, very close to nearby houses.
