THE enormous fire which erupted in the La Bajadilla fishermen’s marina in Marbella has been brought under control—but has potentially destroyed around 80 pleasure boats worth millions of euros.

The emergency alarm sounded at about 7pm yesterday, January 11, and saw dozens of police, firefighters and ambulances mobilised to the scene.
