Residents’ false alarm as car engine explodes

STARTLED residents in Las Galletas were awoken on Tuesday to an explosion from a car parked in the street,

The big bang was heard at around 6.30am, and the noise appeared to have come from Calle de la Paz, the main road into the town.

Locals informed the emergency services rapidly, and, once the call was received, fire-engines and their crews were dispatched.

Fire-fighters began extinguishing the flames, while the Local Police proceeded with traffic control.

Fortunately, there were no casualties, and, because the offending car was parked away from domestic homes, residents did not need to be evacuated.

Local Police have reassured neighbours in the surrounding area that the explosion was a genuine accident, caused by a poor contact in the vehicle’s engine.
