Massive fire consumes building in Morelos

Morelos, Mexico — The Morelos State Civil Protection Coordination reported on a massive fire that broke out Sunday in a building of the Ciudad Industrial del Valle de Cuernavaca (CIVAC) in Morelos.

State Civil Protection said the fire was recorded around 11:40 p.m., when the building of a company that manufactures cosmetic products, caught fire. Elements of the Red Cross, PC and Firefighters from Cuernavaca, Jiutepec, Yautepec and Cuernavaca arrived along with staff from the Morelos delegation, CIVAC Emergency Control Center (CCEC) and the Mutual Aid Plan Group ( PAM).

The massive fire and intense heat caused neighbors to be evacuated while authorities controlled the scene. It wasn’t until 3:19 a.m. that Civil Protection of Morelos reported the fire as under control, allowing residents to return to their homes.

There were no injuries reported during the incident. Authorities continue to investigate the cause of the Sunday fire.
