AT LEAST one dead and around P500,000 worth of properties were lost in two separate fires that broke out Tuesday dawn, September 13, 2022, in Barangays Jagobiao and Casuntingan, Mandaue City.

Senior Fire Officer 1 Antonio Montajes, fire investigator of the Mandaue City Fire Office (MCFO), told SunStar Cebu on Tuesday afternoon that they have yet to establish the causes of the two fire incidents.

The fatality was identified as Bruno Estillore, 69, who died of suffocation and severe burns.

Montajes said the victim from Barangay Casuntingan was bedridden, and his wife was late to realize that her husband was trapped in a burning house.

Montajes said Estillore was rushed to Mandaue City Hospital for treatment, but he was later proclaimed dead. (HIC)
