Spanish Care Home Fire Kills 89-year-old Woman, Injures 18
MADRID: A fire at a Spanish care home killed an 89-year-old woman and injured 18 people, emergency services said on Wednesday.
The blaze began on the third floor at the Domusvi-Adorea home in Seville in southern Spain just before midnight on Tuesday, firefighters said.
“This was the intervention of the emergency services in the residence home in which an 89-year-old woman died and 18 people were hospitalised,” the Seville Emergency Services said in a tweet.
Neighbours brought blankets and offered refuge in their own homes to elderly residents who were forced to leave the building.
Many residents were taken by council workers to a sports centre to spend the night.
The cause of the fire was being investigated, emergency services said.
