Firefighters were deployed to the La Calatrava district of Palma at around 10:00 on Wednesday along with Local Police and several ambulances.

A massive fire had ripped through the attic apartment at number 5 Avenida Gabriel Alomar y Villalonga, gutting the dining room and at least one other room and the searing heat caused the windows on the closed terrace to explode, forcing local residents to run for cover.
