Firework causes damage to houses and land
The emergency services were called out to an incident in La Victoria on New Year’s Eve when a firework caused damage to property and land.
The incident happened just before 10.15pm in calle Santo Domingo.
The 112 control centre was told that some sort of pyrotechnic device had generated a fire.
Firefighters, the Civil Guard and the police all went to the scene.
No injuries were suffered by anyone in the area but the fire affected two palm trees, stubble and two houses which suffered glass breakage and other damage.
Police subsequently launched an investigation. No details were given about where the firework was set off ie on the land itself or whether it had gone astray from elsewhere.
