Fire hits Pier 1
A FIRE broke out in a restaurant at the Park Mall in the North Reclamation Area, Mandaue City, that drove out nearly a hundred customers outside in a panic at past 7 p.m. yesterday.
Mandaue City Fire Marshall Rogelio Bongabong said the fire originated in the exhaust panel of the Pier One Bar and Grill’s frying area.
He said the oil deposits that accumulated in the exhaust panel may have ignited the fire from the frying area.
Bongabong said the fire was later controlled after three minutes and the damage was minimal.
“We don’t know what caused the fire yet,” said Judith Letty Sellner, marketing officer of Pier One. Correspondent Norman V. Mendoza
