Homes flattened by a fireworks’ blaze

FIREWORKS at a party sparked a blaze which destroyed two homes, as well as scorching 5,000sq/m of land.

It rendered four people homeless, and took fire-fighters 10 hours to extinguish the flames.

Their task was made worse because one of the houses had a yard, filled with highly-flammable junk.

The blaze started at around 1.50am last Sunday, during a party on Mallorca’s Cami dels Pous de Buger, Sa Pobla.

Fireworks landed among a pile of junk in a neighbouring property, which provided fuel for the blaze.

Flames spread rapidly, causing severe damage to both properties, but police said they had interviewed a man in connection with the blaze, and charges could follow.
