OUT OF THE FRYING PAN: Ukrainian Refugee Family Rescued From House Inferno In Spain

A Ukrainian refugee family who fled the Russian invasion has been rescued from a devastating house fire in Spain.

The blaze left one victim hospitalised and 12 people needing treatment at the scene when it struck a home in Boadilla del Monte, near Madrid, on 14th July.

First responders on the scene entered the burning building’s second floor after the property owner confirmed that there were people inside.

Civil Guard cops had to feel the walls and eventually accessed a room where one adult and two children were cowering in fear.

After covering their airways with wet cloths, the group managed to make their way outside.

The police said they rescued four people in total in the burning property, and one of them was taken to the Puerta de Hierro Hospital for urgent treatment.

Twelve people were treated for smoke inhalation at the scene, including eight Civil Guard officers.

Following a preliminary investigation, the authorities believe the fire was started in an adjoining house after a set of batteries used for powering solar panels apparently overheated and exploded.

Due to high temperatures in the region, the flames spread quickly across the property.
