The fire that broke out in Makati early this morning reached task force alpha.
Three individuals—one sustaining minor injuries while the other two lost consciousness—during the fire.
Firemen declared the fire under control before 12nn.
Authorities are still determining what caused the fire, however, residents living just beside the Makati Medical Center suspect that the building was burnt on purpose. Almost 300 families lost their homes.
The said property is said to be privately owned and residents were asked to leave the building years before.
The Makati government, meanwhile, appealed to the Skyway management to let residents use the vacant Skyway as temporary evacuation center. (Chris Capulso)
