The Almuñécar fire service were deployed for nearly two hours to tackle a garage fire in Torrecuevas, more or less opposite the pharmacy.
Both the Guardia Civil and Policía Local also raced around to the fire, which was causing a pall of smoke clearly visible along the Vega de Río Verde and Taramay.
The car that was parked inside, together with the contents of the garage, was severely damaged by the flames.
The police carried out an investigation on the spot which led to the arrest of a suspect thought to be behind the fire.
