The neighbourhoods of Jardin Del Mar and El Limonar were awoken in the early hours of Thursday morning, to the sound of explosions and glass smashing under the heat of a fire at the Centrocan pet superstore.
It is not yet known what caused the fire to break out which has completely gutted the building, leaving nothing more than a burnt out shell. It is hoped that the animals that are housed on the premises may have survived as the flames were concentrated on the upper floor of the building.
The Centrocan van was seen driving away from the property to a place of safety, which has given more hope that the animals may have been rescued. One witness said “I can’t imagine what it will be like for someone who has left there pet overnight with the vet, only to return tomorrow to find the worst”
Smoke could be seen from miles around as the Bomberos tried to extinguish the flames. Explosions and gaseous flames hindered the progress, resulting in over an hour of fire fighting to get the flames under control. Firefighters were seen to be exhausted by their attempts, whilst both the Local Police and the Guardia Civil worked closely together to keep the gathering crowds at a safe distance.
