The rapid intervention of the troops of the Regional Park of Firemen of Dénia has avoided what could have been a tragedy. After the 13: 00 hours, a fire originated in the area of La Pedrera near the hospital for chronic patients, for unknown reasons.
Three vehicles from the Regional Fire Department, five firefighters and the sergeant have moved to the area to begin the work of extinction, preventing the fire from spreading to the area where the oxygen cylinders of the hospital are located.
For about an hour they have worked on the extinction of the flames, which have finally burned a surface of 2.000 square meters of scrub and abandoned crops at only 200 meters from the La Pedrera Hospital. Two members of the Dénia Local Police corps have collaborated in the work.
