MANILA, Philippines — At past 12 am on February 6, the Kamuning Bakery in Quezon City went ablaze.
According to the Bureau of Protection (BFP), the fire was caused by embers left from another fire incident that happened yesterday in an establishment beside the bakery.
“We are looking into the possibility that ember from the fire incident earlier went in. The flooring of the second floor is pure light materials or timber. And the storage room contains a lot of stuff such as paper and other things,” said BFP QC chief investigator Insp. Rosendo Cabillan.
Kamuning Bakery has been operating for seventy years. — UNTV News & Rescue

DAVAO CITY, Philippines — An explosion took place inside the New City Commercial Center Mall, Wednesday.
This happened at around 9:45 in the morning while the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) was conducting a search and retrieval operation inside the mall.
“Medyo ng shake siya so (the structure slightly shook, so) our ground commander decided to a suspended search and retrieval,” BFP R11 Asst. Regional Director for Operations F/Supt. Honee Fritz A. Alagano
As of now, authorities are still determining when they can resume the operations.
Meanwhile, the total value of the damage caused by the fire is estimated to have reached P1.6-billion.
Upon BFP Region 11’s initial investigation, the fire started at the furniture section on the 3RD level of the mall.
This, however, did not give a clear picture as to the cause of the fire that took the lives of 38 individuals.
“Yun po ang denidetermine pa po natin yan. Kasi nga yung sabi ko may dalawang information na galing po sa ceiling yung apoy na tumulo and may nagsasabi din na galing sa floor,” Alagano said.
(That is what we are trying to determine. There’s a report that says the fire started in the ceiling while another says it came from the floor.)
Authorities are also looking into the alleged insufficient fire exits or the fire exits that were left locked leaving the victims unable to escape. – Victor Cosare | UNTV News & Rescue
