CITY OF MALOLOS, Philippines— Classes at the Malolos City Integrated School here were suspended after a two-hour fire razed 14 classrooms in one of its two buildings early Monday.

Villamejor said two classrooms for the Special Education Program classes, four classrooms for Grade 2 pupils and eight classrooms for high school were destroyed by the fire that was put out at past 6 a.m.

He said each of the destroyed classrooms had accommodated 100 students.

FEATURED STORIES

Villamejor said school officials were preparing to resume classes by Tuesday or Wednesday.

Romeo Rillo, provincial fire marshal, said investigators are looking at faulty wiring in the 38-year-old wooden building as cause of the fire.

Villamejor said a security guard saw the light bulbs along the corridors spark before the fire broke out.
