The incident occurred at the BH Mallorca hotel located on Avenida de las Palmeras on Sunday night, in which the blaze spread through multiple hotel rooms causing two floors to be evacuated.
Several people trapped on balconies were rescued by firefighters as black smoke billowed from the building. Nobody was seriously injured; however multiple people including 3 firefighters were treated for smoke inhalation.
After witnesses were interviewed the police discovered that in the room where the fire started there were two women and three men, one of them was asleep and that the other four were using a lighter and an aerosol on his feet.
The four drunken tourists have been named as Georgia Jones, Lauren Smith, aged 19, and James Brown and Brandon McCahill, aged 21. It has to be decided whether to remand them in custody or release them on bail.
The damage to the hotel has been estimated at around €200,000.
