Ninteen people managed to flee a coach that caught fire en route to Alicante-Elche airport this morning. The driver tried to put out the blaze with an extinguisher, but was forced to give up due to its intensity.

The fire started on the A-70 Alicante bypass close to Alicante University, with all of the passengers’ luggage being destroyed in the blaze. Their nationalities, or where they were travelling from were not revealed, but one of the tourists had to be treated for shock.
