Operations of most of the fire fighters who responded to the fire alarm that reached Task Force Alpha were hampered by narrow roads leading to the fire scene.

The fire was put under control around 4 p.m.

No injury was reported so far as of posting time and fire authorities were still assessing the damage to property.
