A fire at a rent-a-car depot near Faro airport has destroyed 27 cars and caused damage to many nearby vehicles, according to the police.
Emergency services were alerted at 02:51 and vehicles from the fire service in Faro and Loulé soon were on the scene as was the GNR.
The Luzcar depot in Montenegro was a scene of chaos as car after car was consumed by flames.
Whether the fire was set deliberately or not remains to be seen but these car storage areas are frequently broken into and cars damaged in the poorly lit areas. The judicial police are investigating.
