Death toll rises to 10 after deadly fire in Spain

0 0

The death toll from a dramatic fire that left two residential buildings charred in Valencia rose to 10 on Saturday after authorities announced they located the remains of what they believe is the last missing person.

Forensic Police found the 10th victim inside the scorched building, national government delegate in Valencia Pilar Bernabe told journalists. Police will proceed with DNA testing to confirm the identities of all the victims, she said.

While there were no other missing persons reported, Bernabe stressed that Police and firefighters would continue the ‘complex’ work of combing through the building debris in search of any other possible victim.

It was not immediately known how many people were in the two buildings when the fire broke out, but the complex had some 140 apartments.

The blaze that appeared to begin in one home on Thursday afternoon eventually ripped through a 14-story apartment block, with officials warning on Friday that the death toll could rise. Experts said the building was covered with highly flammable cladding, which could account for the rapid spread of the blaze after it broke out on the fourth floor early Thursday evening. (CBS)
