The incident occurred in the Lagunita neighborhood. Neighbors saw a lot of smoke and several flames coming from the house, so they informed others. At that moment, the officer living in the residence decided to go inside to rescue a child who was inside the house. Once he managed to save her, his body caught fire and when he came out he died of severe burns.

At the moment, the cause of the fire was a short circuit of two light bulbs, some of the attendees told Radio Fe y Alegría Noticias.
