Smoke and flames alerted the residents of El Charco de San Gines in Arrecife to potential danger, and firefighters quickly responded to emergency calls and arrived at the scene of the fire.
The fire appears to have started in an abandoned vehicle in a rough parking area, where two other cars parked on both sides were also damaged.
When the fire had been extinguished, local police carried out investigations of the fire incident, which is currently believed to have been intentional.
