6 fires rage in Metro Cebu

In a span of nearly 10 hours, firefighters here responded to at least six fires, two of which affected residential areas, on Sunday.

The first fire broke out along Cabajar Street, near the Guadalupe Police Station in Barangay Guadalupe, Cebu City, at 5:50 a.m.


Three hours later, or past 9 a.m., firefighters rushed to Sitio Malipayon in Barangay Inayawan, also in Cebu City, after receiving a fire alarm there.


Just an hour after putting out the fire in Barangay Inayawan, firefighters received another fire alarm from Barangay Tisa, which later turned out to be a grass fire only.

Around four hours later, firefighters responded to a fire in Barangay Bacayan for another fire there. Barely an hour later, the Cebu City Fire Office confirmed another fire alarm in Barangay Lahug. It later turned out to be a rubbish fire.
