A BRITISH man has died in a house fire at an urbanization on the Costa del Sol.
The 50-year-old deceased is reported to have lost his life due to smoke inhalation.
A blaze broke out at a property in the Alcaidesa Golf & Beach resort at around 2:30am on Tuesday.
Several people were trapped inside the two-story home, which is located on the back of the luxury urbanization.
It is not yet clear if the house belonged to the Brit, or if he was a holidaymaker, or Spanish resident.
He was pronounced dead in an ambulance after being rushed from the scene by paramedics.
This death is the third from fires in Andalucia in a three-day period after a couple in their 70s died in a blaze on Sunday, which was believed to have been caused by a stove.
Alcaidesa is a popular golf resort, with two courses, which hosts visitors from all over the world.
