Managua, May 26 - At least four restaurants and one property were destroyed Sunday by a fire in Nicaragua's western city of Leon, authorities said.

Eugarrio said the fire occurred at 5:45 a.m. and firefighters controlled the fire an hour later despite lack of enough water pumps.

We are working together with the police to find out the cause of the fire so investigations may continue, he said.

Eugarrio said the fire destroyed three bars and affected another bar and other property.
