Blaze damages warehouse

A morning blaze in an abandoned dwelling caused damage to the adjacent coffee warehouse and apartments.

The fire, reported at 10:12 a.m. Tuesday was on Calle 24 between Avenidas 3 and 5, said the Cuerpo de Bomberos. The location is adjacent to the El Rey coffee warehouse.

Fire investigators said that an electrical malfunction was not the cause because the power had been turned off.  Instead they are looking at the activities of vagrants, who have been living in the dwelling, they said. Some use candles for illumination, they added.
