Shortly after 10 this morning a team from the Reggio Calabria fire brigade was called to deal with a fire in an apartment. Despite the considerable difficulties dictated by the internal position of the house, the men coordinated by the team leader Carmelo Mallamaci they managed to reach the affected fourth floor through the apartment above, thus managing to put out the flames which had already engulfed most of the furnishings on the balcony. The timely and professional intervention of the firefighters supported by two vehicles prevented much more serious consequences for the rest of the building. The residents of the adjacent apartments were evacuated only as a precaution, and were able to return to their homes at the end of the verification and safety operations. The state police were also on site.
