Garden Rubbish Container Fire
This morning there was a fire in the garden rubbish container close to our house and next to the boundary wall of the finca. The owner of the property has a water supply close to location and acted quickly as a bombero trying to douse the fire.
The emergency services having been called, the Policia Local arrived in force, two vehicles and five officers, a little over the top, followed shortly by the members of the Cuerpo de Bomberos, two of who efficiently dealt with the problem,.
You'll notice in the video the gentleman in the white trousers and green cardigan was most concerned that he could continue to dump his garden waste from his wheelbarrow.
On a lighter note; To put the fire out took two bomberos whilst two more and five policia local supervised.
Edit: 22.02.2012. It seems our little fire was one of the four mentioned in this article: New mini-fire engine blazes a trail to the coast .
