Curridabat fire leaves 45 homeless

A fire Monday morning in Barrio Nuevo, Curridabat, in east San José left 45 people homeless.

The blaze began after two children, 6 and 8 years old, were playing with matches while their mother slept, the daily La Nacíon reported. The blaze started in a wooden house, in a poor section of Curridabat, behind the Multiplaza del Este Mall, before spreading to surrounding lodgings. The fire was under control by 11:27 a.m. The blaze left 25 adults and 20 children without a place to live.

No injuries, other than sickness caused by smoke inhalation, were reported.
