MANILA — A fire of unknown origin broke out in a textile warehouse on 5th Street, Sitio Burol, Barangay San Juan, Taytay, Rizal early morning on Tuesday, 19 July 2022.
Municipal firemen responded and tried to extinguish the blaze for more than six hours to no avail since it broke out around 12:30 am that day.
According to the Bureau of Fire Protection of Taytay, it proved to be a big challenge for them to put out the fire as the warehouse was full of textile and plastic stocks when the fire broke out.
Aside from this, there were also fallen rocks strewn on the second floor of the warehouse and the local BFP had earlier stated that they also fear a structural collapse might occur in the building due to its broken roof.
The fire reached the third alarm at around 1:14 p.m.
Of this writing, fire investigators have yet to determine the cause of the fire and so with an estimate on the extent of damages.
