The fire, which erupted in an interior portion of the sitio, started at 12:59 p.m. and was placed under first alarm at 1:06 p.m., under control at 1:24 p.m. and declared out after three minutes.

Fire Officer 3 Fulbert Navarro, duty investigator of the Cebu City Fire Office, said the fire started from the house of a certain Lily Sundo, and later spread to 11 other houses.
