Emergency Supply Warehouse Gutted by Accidental Fire
A National Emergency Commission (CNE) supply warehouse caught fire near the TobíasBolañosAirport in Pavas, west of San José, destroying emergency supplies for the earthquake relief effort.
ONE workers had been building an expansion to the warehouse, located just down the hill from the airport and CNE main offices, when sparks from a welder ignited one of the polyurethane foam mattresses being stored there.
No one was injured, but the warehouse was gutted within five minutes, said one of the CNE workers who was in the warehouse when the fire started. The warehouse held food, lamps, power saws and bedding.
