Fire destroys Plaza Lama warehouse on Duarte Highway

A major fire totaled the inventory at the Plaza Lama warehouse located at Km. 13 of Duarte Highway. As reported, the fire began at around 4pm. More than 25 firefighting units and over 60 men from fire stations in Greater Santo Domingo participated in putting out the fire. Even a helicopter was used. As reported, several air drones flew over the fire to determine its origin. Likewise, six water trucks from the Santo Domingo Water Corporation (CAASD) and dozens of volunteers participated in the major effort. An intense rain that fell at around 9pm contributed to putting out the fire.

A major concern was that the fire spread to a natural gas station that is located next door to the warehouse. As reported, fortunately, the natural gas was stored in tanks that were mobilized.

The fire caused a major bottleneck on the Duarte Highway in the north-south direction. Metropolitan Transport Authority agents had to habilitate a detour to the other side of the road. No injured nor dead were reported in the incident.
