A fire at the home of Real Madrid striker Jese Rodriguez has left three workmen injured, one seriously, with 15% burns to his body.
The incident occurred this evening while the workmen were in the garage at the star’s rented property. The 21-year-old lives in the upmarket suburb of La Finca, Pozuelo de Alarcón, on the outskirts of the Spanish capital.
Spanish daily, Marca, reported that one of the workmen at the house was rushed to La Paz Hospital with burns to his body. The other two men were treated at Puerta de Hierro suffering from smoke inhalation.
An image of the house was published by the paper, with black smoke billowing out, although it is not clear how the fire started. According to Marca, one of the floors at the property was destroyed.
Other Real Madrid players living in the area reportedly rushed to the scene to see if everyone was ok, while it remains unclear whether Jese was at home at the time the fire occurred.
The incident continues the 21-year-old’s run of bad luck having sustained a serious knee injury early on in the Champions League match against Schalke last week. He is expected to be missing for six months after having an operation in Germany last week.
Prior to his injury, the Spain Under 21 international had played an important part in his debut season within the first team setup, scoring eight goals in 32 appearances.
