Manises fire near air­port ho­tel

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

News staff re­porter A BLAZE broke out in a dry riverbed near the Valencia air­port in­dus­trial es­tate in the early hours of Tues­day, caus­ing clouds of black smoke that could be seen from out­side the ter­mi­nal.

The in­ferno started in the Salt de l'Aigua ravine in Manises close to the Ho­tel Azafata, and was ini­tially thought to be a mi­nor inci- dent – but strong winds fanned the flames and it be­gan to spread at an alarm­ing rate.

Fire­fight­ers had their work cut out try­ing to keep it contained, but by around 09.00 they said it was 'more or less un­der con­trol'.

De­spite its prox­im­ity to one of the main air­port ho­tels, no­body had to be evac­u­ated.
