Early Wednesday, a fire blasted through a retirement home in a Valencia neighbourhood, killing five inhabitants, according to rescue services.

The news: The fire erupted at midnight and took two hours to put out, according to the fire department’s Twitter feed.

  • Around 70 people were forced to flee the house in Moncada, a northern suburb of Valencia, Spain’s third largest city. There are rooms for 100 individuals in the house.
  • Eleven persons were sent to the hospital with smoke inhalation, according to emergency services.
  • The fire brigade and police were investigating the cause of the incident.

What they’re saying: “First clues, according to what they told me, point at two possibilities: an electric failure possibly linked to an oxygen bottle or a neglect from a resident who was smoking,” said Martin Perez Aranda, a town councillor and firefighter.

Most of the residents of the burned section were placed in the home’s spare space and will be evacuated to other homes in the area during the day, according to him.
