One would think that with the invention of metal buildings, fire outbreaks would be far less occurring. But apparently not, as proven by the fire just now on Quimpo Blvd, here in Davao City.
A fire hit the DecoArts Hardware Warehouse just across the SM Mall here in Matina, Davao City. The TV Patrol twitter feed revealed that the fire was at 5th Alarm more than two hours ago, half an hour before midnight PHL time.
I think that there is far less internet coverage on breaking news such as these here. It’s been more than 2 hours since that twitter feed, and I am still hearing sirens on McArthur Highway going into Quimpo Boulevard. McArthur is only a house away from mine.
