A fire that hit a three-story building in Ermita, Manila, left four people injured, including two fire volunteers, on Thursday afternoon.

It also damaged around 30 to 50 houses and displaced around 1,000 people, mostly students.


The blaze on Silvia Street, which was behind Adamson University, started at 12:26 p.m. and was declared under control at 3:55 p.m.


The injured fire volunteers were identified as Senior Fire Officer 1 Ricky Sidenio and Fire Officer 3 Angelo Panado.

According to a Bureau of Fire Protection report, the blaze began at the third floor of a boarding house made of light materials.

It spread quickly, prompting officials of Adamson University to suspend classes. Authorities estimated the damage at around P5 million. —Nikka G. Valenzuela
