CIEE Security Alert - Madrid
CIEE Madrid Staff have reported that there was a small fire in a park nearby one of our student dormitories (residencia Emilia Pardo Bazán) at 13:49 US EST, with smoke from the fire eventually reaching our location while local emergency response attempted to contain the fire. No evacuation order was needed, or issued by local authorities, and the fire has since been contained by local fire authorities. Roads around our dormitory have reopened and public transport is resuming normally. CIEE Madrid Staff have been onsite, activities have continued uninterrupted, and all CIEE students remain safe.
