A large fire destroyed a pallet manufacturing plant this afternoon near KM 26 along the Highway between San Salvador and Sonsonate near Lourde, Colón, in the dept of La Libertad.
The fire started at the Tarimas El Angel business mid day and employees tried to put it out but instead decided to save their lives instead. Comandos arrived in order to manage crowd control and help local firefighters control the fire. 5 ambulances, 3 water tanks, and 2 firetrucks were on scene to support.
