Senior Fire Officer 4 Ramil Gillado, the Bureau of Fire and Protection XI Investigation and Operations chief, said the fire happened at Block 8 and 9 Muslim Village Vista Mar Purok 11.

Accordingly, the fire started at the house of Alicia Caymo 49, a resident of Block 9. According to the neighbor, Amina Amil, Caymo’s husband Joseph went wild inside their house. He was allegedly drunk at that time.

A few seconds, Amil saw flames from inside the house.

Investigators placed the damage at an estimated P9,000,000. The fire quickly spread because the houses were made of light materials.
