Black Smoke Covers Skyline Near Sotogrande as Oil Refiner Suffers 'Power Cut'

Sunday afternoon a large smoke plume could be observed from Sotogrande’s La Reserva neighbourhood.

What appeared to be a fire coming from La Alcaidesa or San Roque turns out to be coming from the Cepsa oil refinery in San Roque.

According to the newspaper El Estrecho, the smoke is coming from the oil refinery in San Roque, which has suffered a ‘power cut’ and has therefore seen various plants shut down.

The smoke clouds could also be observed from Algeciras.

More details to follow.
