The Almuñécar fire service was called out on Sunday night to put out a rubbish hopper in flames in Tarmay.
They received a call out around 23.00h to attend to this act of arson on Calle Pintor Domínguez de Haro in the Urbanización Galera Playa.
A crew of three fire personnel were needed onboard the light, fire vehicle, an adapted Land Rover.
The fire was soon put out but not before one hopper was totally destroyed and the one next to it was severly damaged. Also damaged by the flames was a nearby palm tree.
