Portion of Skyway collapses in huge fire in Pandacan, Manila
MANILA, Philippines — A section of the Skyway Stage 3 Elevated Expressway caved in due to a massive fire that struck a warehouse in Pandacan, Manila.
The blaze, which has reached Task Force Bravo, is razing the warehouse of the San Miguel Yamamura Packaging Corporation, which manufactures packaging products like glass and plastic.
The elevated highway, which is still under construction, collapsed because of the fire, the Manila Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office said.
The Skyway Stage 3 project, which stretches 18.68 kilometers, was meant to shorten travel time between northern and southern portions of National Capital Region.
