The dome of a building on Alfonso XII street in Madrid has collapsed this morning without causing injuries, although the rubble has fallen on the balconies of the upper floors and on the public road, affecting several parked vehicles, Emergencias Madrid has reported.
Firefighters have secured the area and have proceeded to clean up the affected part of the building and remove rubble from the street.
The head of the Madrid Fire Department, David Ramos, explained that “numerous material damages” have occurred due to the fall of the rubble onto the street, but no person has been injured.
In addition, he stated that in principle it appears that the building does not show structural damage and there are only “aesthetic damages”, although the damage is “still being assessed”.
