A car caught fire on the main drag down to Salobreña beach during the late morning of Sunday – nobody was hurt.
The incident took place on the Avenida del Mediterráneo and resulted in the car (a courtesy vehicle) ending up completely burnt out, despite the efforts of the Motril fire service.
You can see from the photo that it is at the entrance to Urbanisazión El Sol (Edif. Plutón). That’s the one that leads down to This is BBQ from the top end.
According the the Policía Local, the fire started in the engine but it’s up to the fire-service investigators to decide what caused it.
Comments on social media concern the lack of a local fire service and having to depend on nearby Motril, which already has its own work cut out for it with Motril’s own fire-coverage needs.
