Firemen responded quickly as the fire alert was upgraded to the first alarm at 8:52 p.m., followed by the second at 8:54 p.m., and the third three minutes later.

A total of 17 firetrucks were sent to the scene before the fire was put out at 11:41 p.m., although there was significant damage by then.

A resident, 19-year-old Joyskie Balbareno, was treated for an open wound on his right wrist but no fatalities have been reported so far.

Fire officials are still investigating the cause of the blaze and determining the extent of property damage. —RUSSEL LORETO
