/ 01:10 PM August 20, 2013

MANILA, Philippines— Fire gutted two establishments in separate incidents in Pasay and Makati on Tuesday amid heavy rains brought by tropical storm “Maring.”

The fire that struck a clothing warehouse in Pasay City at around 6:41am was put out after more than  two hours while another blaze gutted the second and third floor of Ayala Builders, a hardware store along EDSA Magallanes in Makati City at 9a.m,  a radio report said.

The fire in Makati reached the third alarm and was put under control at 10:30 a.m. The establishment was said to have contained storage of paint that made it difficult for firefighters to contain the blaze.
