An old man of about 80 years has died in the Mixed Residence of Gijón due to a fire caused by a cigarette he was smoking, as confirmed by sources from the Asturian Government’s Ministry of Social Rights.

The duty judge and the National Police are investigating the causes of this fire that happened yesterday, Friday, around 10:00 p.m., in an interior courtyard of the geriatric center and was recorded by security cameras.

Apparently, the old man was smoking sitting in a wheelchair in a downtown garden when the fire started, which developed rapidly so that the workers who came to his aid could not do anything to save his life.
