A French tourist died Friday in a fire at a luxury hotel in Marbella and nine other people were injured while trying to escape the flames, police have said.
Footage on social media showed people escaping the fire at the Sisu Boutique Hotel in Puerto Banus, Marbella, through windows and climbing down several stories of the building’s lattice facade.
It took more than three hours to extinguish the raging blaze, which broke out at 6 a.m., Malaga province’s civil protection agency said.
A National Police spokeswoman in the province confirmed that the only victim was a Frenchman who was staying at the hotel.
100 guests were staying at the hotel with 22 taken to hospital and now fire investigation officers are investigating the cause of the fire.
