A vast fire which broke out in a tourist marina in Marbella, Spain, destroyed a storage warehouse and around eighty vessels.

The fire broke out in the La Bajadilla marina around 7pm local time on Wednesday 11 January, causing damages for millions of euros. Fire rescue, police and ambulances were present on the scene.

The causes of the fire are still unknown. In just a short time, even though access to the port had been blocked, a crowd gathered nearby to see what was happening, filming dozens of videos which immediately went viral online.

A column of thick smoke and flames, visible kilometres away, became the sad symbol of a dramatic evening in the Spanish tourist town, with damages still being calculated, but estimated to be in the millions.

Around thirty fire fighters worked for hours to put out the fire and secure the area. The fire was under control by 9pm, and investigations are still under way as to what caused it.
