No personal injuries were reported, the Cruz Roja reported no one required a transfer to a medical facility.

Jeffrey Quesada, fire chief in Alajuela, said that the fire was reported around 5 pm and it was put quickly.

“There are 10 houses consumed in their entirety, 10 families,” said the official.

A neighbor in the area, named Urbina, told the press that the fire started with a candle. “We lost everything,” exclaimed her mother, who mentioned that she has three small children in her care.
