Recycling plant fire 'perilously close' to Torre Pacheco town centre
17 June 2015 @ 11:22

A BLAZE at a plastics recycling plant in Torre Pacheco (Murcia) is finally under control after emergency services worked the whole night, but has destroyed most of the complex.

Civil Protection squad members say they were called just before 17.00hrs after a local resident alerted the police, but that the response team managed to stop the inferno from spreading beyond the factory and its grounds.

Given that the contents of the plant were highly-flammable, as many as 10 fire engines and a helicopter were drafted in at one point as workers fought to beat back the flames.

They were particularly concerned that the blaze was only 200 metres from Torre Pacheco town centre, very close to the railway station and just a kilometre from the IFEPA trade fair centre.
