FIREFIGHTERS have rescued the residents of six bungalows on the Costa Blanca after they began collapsing in the early hours of this morning.
At one o’clock on Friday morning (December 13) the enclosure wall of one of the houses collapsed, sending hundreds of kilos of rubble tumbling to the street.
Fortunately there was no one inside because as the property had been repossessed by a bank, but the neighbouring five houses were evacuated after cracks began appearing in the walls.
The operation took place in Calle Joaquín Margarit in Monóvar, near Elda in Alicante province.
The municipal architect has ordered the immediate demolition of the initial house, while residents of the remaining five have been denied access to their houses while a demolition decision is made.
