Fire near Parc Güell destroys 40 parked cars

A BLAZE on a street next to Barcelona's iconic Parc Güell has left 40 stationed cars totally burnt out.

The fire was seen in the early hours of yesterday (Tuesday) morning on the Avenida Coll de Portell, at the foot of the colourful, mosaïc-covered structure designed by flamboyant architect Antoni Gaudí, whose masterpiece – the Sagrada Família cathedral – remains unfinished 100 years after his death.

Firefighters rushed out at 02.45hrs and found the vehicles, parked on either side of the road, completely destroyed, as was an electricity junction box in the street.

The entrance gate to the park – which was purpose-built and has no artistic value as it is not part of the Gaudí structure – was also badly damaged.

Nobody was hurt in the fire, although witnesses were terrified due to its dramatic nature.

Catalunya's answer to the Guardia Civil, the Mossos d'Esquadra, have opened an inquiry to find out how the blaze was caused and whether it could have been the work of arsonists.
