CDS has intensified it’s operations over the last few days due to the high number of emergency calls accumulated. There was a firework factory explosion in Ciudad Delgado in Colonia la Milagrosa. The National Bomberos also assisted. Comandos de Salvamento offered mental health support for those overwhelmed by the experience and also fought the fire side by side with firefighters.
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.
CDS responded to the “Tres Torres” fire at the government dept. of treasury today where one government employee, Mrs. Nubia Karina Campos, died at the scene and others suffered various traumas due to the 4th level being engulfed in flames.
Comandos, and other grass roots EMS agencies and the National Firefighters saved many other government officials. The Salvadoran Airforce FAS also collaborated and was able to rescue two people from the top roof. Two employees made the choice to jump to save themselves but suffered grave injuries as a result.
