Three cars burned by fire at the Oasis complex in Sitges

A fire destroyed three vehicles that were parked on Calle Salvador Olivella, in the Oasis complex in Sitges on Monday night, and which started for as yet unknown reasons.

The quick intervention of the local Fire Brigade and the rest of the security forces managed to prevent the fire – which reached several metres in height – from spreading to other cars. Another vehicle that was parked next to the three that were burned was also slightly damaged.

The fire started around 9.30pm and within a short time it became extremely fierce, so much so that the flames affected part of the façade of the building in front. The danger then increased again due to various explosions that could be heard as the fire subsided. The flames were visible from several parts of Sitges, especially Poble Sec and Pins Bens.

The intervention of the Fire Brigade was quick and decisive in stopping the impact of the fire and causing major damage. Several fire engines, as well as the Local Police, the Mossos d’Esquadra and even the SEM ambulance service, were dispatched to the scene, in case further assistance was needed. The fire, however, did not cause any injuries to any local citizens. The councilor for Governació, David Martínez, also attended the scene, and was in contact with the various security forces.

About twenty metres from where the burned vehicles were, there is the Oasis playground, where dozens of children play every afternoon, normally after school. It is also next to the offices of the Gremi d’Hostaleria (Hospitality Guild).
