Firemen had a busy night last night, attending various blazes in Arrecife and Puerto del Carmen.

At 6.48, emergency services were called to a house in Arrecife where a woman had lit a small fire, apparently in a suicide attempt. Paramedics took the woman to the Dr José Molina Orosa Hospital for monitoring and assessment, while firemen put the fire out.

Later, just after 1 am, firemen were called to attend to a fire in a cardboard recycling container on Calle Chubasquero in Puerto del Carmen. They extinguished the blaze rapidly and the container was not destroyed.

At 4am, a call arrived from Calle Tenderete in Argana Alta, Arrecife reporting a fire in a vehicle. Firemen discovered that the fire was affecting two cars parked next to the affected vehicle and put the fire out.

Shortly afterwards, firemen were called to a house in Arrecife where a small fire had broken out in a basement bathroom. The owner had managed to put the fire out by the time they arrived, and firemen checked the site and ventilated the room.
