Black smoke and red flames consume the wooden structure of the exclusive “Watson” hostel in Pinamar, located in the border area . According to the images, tourists leave the beach aboard their 4×4 and their vehicles. From inside the parador, workers try to rescue tables and chairs by pulling them out the windows.
In communication with TN , the head of Civil Defense of the city, Diego Diez, asks that no one return to look for their belongings and provides some details about the parador. “The structures of the spas are made of wood and have all the flame retardant treatments, which are fire retardant,” explains Diez. Despite that, the fire had no mercy. In a few minutes the inn was completely consumed by flames.
