Finally, an alleged serial arsonist responsible for a campaign of fires in public bins in Fuengirola has been arrested.
The local is accused of setting fire to the containers in the early hours in a pattern of destruction that began in June 2022.
The fires, which primarily targeted containers on public roads, often caused damage to nearby streetlights and power lines, leading to power outages in some areas.
The investigation began when burning containers began to appear in the morning at various points in the center of Fuengirola.
The man was arrested on January 16 and now faces charges for starting eleven fires.
